Lately, I have just been beyond tired of chicken salads.

I need to eat light to keep my Weight Watchers Points low, but I was craving some red meat. I remembered that I had some leftover roast beef lunch meat in the fridge and I decided to put it to use in a Roast Beef Salad Recipe that I had at a restaurant in NY.

Of course the Roast Beef Salad I had there was a lot higher in calories, so I slimmed down the restaurant version to make it more Weight Watchers friendly.

Using the butter lettuce instead of the Romaine Lettuce I always use was definitely a nice change too. And the mustard balsamic vinaigrette dressing complemented the roast beef and the blue cheese perfectly. It was amazingly delicious.

And at just 5 Points per salad, I was able to indulge in a tasty dessert afterward. This easy salad recipe is definitely a keeper!
