Please welcome my guest Chicklet, Noelle Pierce! We met in the Romance’s Biggest Winner group, where teams work together to try to lose the most weight. Every week we report our success (or our gains) and have a great time encouraging each other! Noelle recently posted a fantastic salad recipe with us and I asked if she’d share it with the Chicklets. With summer not far away, doesn’t this sound delish?!

However, they weren’t as healthy as possible, because I LURVE those creamy dressings, and the fat-free versions of my honey mustard and cucumber ranch just weren’t cutting it.
