Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

Don't get self-righteous just because you're eating a salad. Some salads, like this one, are simply too big. At 1,300 calories, this salad has "about twice as many calories as most people need in one sitting," says dietitian Keith Ayoob, author of The Uncle Sam Diet. A smarter choice is to order the half-salad version and ask the kitchen to hold the dressing. That's 320 calories with 620mg of sodium.
