Estimating calories in a chef salad


Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I posted this on the message boards, but I thought one of you might have some suggestions too! I am craving salad, particularly chef salads, but I know they are a lot higher in calories than one would assume. But how much? I don't know!

Does anyone have any suggestions for estimating the calories in a chef salad? There is one at a restaurant in town which is delicious, but they don't have nutritional information available. I can take my measuring spoon to measure out the dressing, but I am not sure how to guesstimate the meats and cheeses. Any suggestions?

This is the description from the menu: "Crispy greens topped with turkey, ham, cheddar and swiss, tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, croutons, eggs and your choice of dressing." It's a pretty huge salad, so I'm sure it's high, but I'd just like some suggestions on how to put it in my tracker.

Thank you!

    I'd enter everything separately. That should give you a pretty good estimate. Usually it's two slices of each type of meat.
