This healthy recipe is the traditional Chef’s Salad. There are other dressings that you can use, including the Honey Mustard or the Parmesan Peppercorn and they will have a similar amount of calories.
While it goes without saying, keeping a dressing requires that it be kept in the refrigerator. Keep the dressing as tightly sealed as possible and in the coldest part of the fridge. For me this is the lower shelf all the way in the back.
