The Entrée Option

A salad in a supporting role is always a safe choice, but what about when you want a plate of greens to take center stage? To that we say, double the greens and dressing, pick your favorite flavor booster, then add extra protein for a super salad supper that clocks in under 400 calories.

Flank steak (3 ounces broiled): 375 calories
