Sorry for the blurry picture, kids. This was snapped muy quickly because, well I was ready to tear into it.
This salad proves a couple of things. One - crunch rocks. The lettuce crunches, the noodles crunch, the almonds crunch. It's like a crunch dream come true.
Second - not all salads are low cal / fat / etc. This salad is eaten not so much for it's nutritional value, but for it's lovely taste. Yes, the lettuce and the almonds are fine for ya, the oil is a "good" fat, but that's about it.
I attempted to calculate the points on this one, just to know, but stopped because it was going to be a hot mess trying to measure it out. So, I guessed and went on with my life.
