Zaxby's Black and Blue Salad Fake-Out

Zaxby's Black and Blue Salad Fake-Out
I absolutely LOVE Zaxby's Black and Blue Salad and I usually order it without toast but I wanted to make it healthier. I decided to get my creative juices flowing when I got home from my workout. I made my healthy version and it turned out DELICIOUS!! If you are a fan of the Black and Blue Salad, check this recipe out! I made a BIG bowl of it so I could eat off of it all week. :) Planning is EVERYTHING!

Things I changed to make the salad healthier: I omitted the french fried onion rings Zaxby's puts on top, used reduced fat blue cheese, and yogurt based dressing (35 calories per serving).

Blackened Chicken:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
Olive oil to brush on chicken

Mix spices together in bowl. Lightly brush chicken breast with olive oil, then dip chicken breast in spice mix. Cover the chicken breast and then place it in a deep covered baker or dish for the oven. Cook chicken breasts in microwave with a deep covered baker or in the oven. When chicken is done, cut in small slices to put over salad.

2 bags of romaine lettuce
1/2 bag of carrot matchsticks
1 container of blue cheese crumbles (reduced fat)
3 small tomatoes, cut up
Bolthouse Farms Yougrt Blue Cheese Dressing

Add lettuce, carrot matchsticks, blue cheese crumbles, and tomatoes in a bowl. Toss around until all ingredients are well mixed together. Add blackened chicken strips. In a small bowl, measure out 2 tablespoons of dressing. Use your fork to dip dressing with salad or pour in salad and mix.
