Shopping Tips
I’ve combed the supermarket shelves looking for one of the leanest regular bacon choices and Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon is my favorite, compared to most regular bacon. It’s much lower in fat and calories. Once cooked on paper towels, the fat is even lower. I calculated my Skinny Facts using this bacon.
In addition, I recently discovered fantastic bacon called Applegate Farms Natural Sunday Bacon. It’s low in fat and calories, uncured, contains no nitrites, and gluten-free. Many supermarkets sell it. I bought mine at Vons/Safeway and Whole Foods.
And there are many other brands that now sell bacon that’s uncured with no nitrates. 

Prep Tips

If desired, you can toss this salad in my skinny blue cheese dressing instead of ranch:
