Deliciously fresh and light with a few Asian flavors, this Chicken and Napa Cabbage Salad Recipe is really a terrific low calorie lunch idea that tastes great and is very satisfying.

The sweet crunch of the cabbage goes perfectly with the soy and ginger dressing. And at just 4 Points for the whole salad, this is one of my favorite Weight Watchers Recipes to rely on when I want a big, filling salad without using up a lot of Points.

You can also add a bit of Splenda or Stevia to the salad dressing to make it a bit sweeter, for no extra Points, which I like to do on occasion. Keep in mind though, that if you use sugar to sweeten it, it may cost you an extra Point. I’ve also added a tbsp of apple cider vinegar sometimes to give the dressing more tang. So there are a couple of different ways you can alter the flavor of the Asian dressing a bit for variation.

Pair this salad with a low calorie soup and some fresh fruit, and you’ve got yourself one fantastic meal that’s filling and nutritious!
