2. Slim Caesar Salad

This salad recipe to lose weight is garlicky, so it’s not the best for date night, unless you both eat it! Fill a medium-sized bowl with romaine pieces, then add a few low-cal croutons, a little shredded low-fat parmesan cheese, the top with low-fat or fat-free Caesar dressing (I love Ken’s), toss, and enjoy! You might also want to top with diced grilled chicken breast or salmon for a complete meal, one that’s loaded with lean protein.
