What if I told you that you could make this amazing chicken, bacon, ranch, and sun-dried tomato salad then serve it either hot on top of zoodles or cold on top of a bed of lettuce? Fortunately, unlike certain 90’s movies you don’t actually have to choose.
You can have this recipe both ways! However, for simplicity’s sake we’ll show you how to make this into a salad today. This recipe clocks in at just 3 net carbs per serving. We used our own ranch dressing for this recipe, but you can use whatever dressing you like. Just be sure to adjust the nutritional information when tracking.
