Woohoo! HG has some AWESOME salad ideas for you...
Don't get caught in a boring salad rut this summer. Check out these super-
delicious salad recipe equations. They'll add tons of deliciousness to your day
without adding lots of calories or subtracting any flavor. Promise!!!
Super Duper Southwest Salad
(Entire salad: Approx. 275 calories, 5.5g fat, 785g sodium, 36g carbs, 9g
fiber, 13g sugars, 26g protein = 5 Points)
3 cups romaine lettuce + 1/2 cup tomatoes + 1/2 cup red pepper strips +
1/4 cup corn niblets + 1/4 cup black beans + 1/2 cup chunk chicken + 2
tbsp. salsa + 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
This salad will satisfy your craving for a giant honkin' Mexican-inspired meal.
And feel free to zazzle it up a little more with some shredded fat free cheese
and/or some crushed fat-free tortilla chips. Your nutritonals will vary, of
course, but this one's so low-cal that even with the extra goodies, it'll still
clock in with staggeringly low stats.
California Veggie Heaven
(Entire salad: Approx. 250 calories, 6.5g fat, 1,045g sodium, 40g carbs, 8g
fiber, 17g sugars, 10.5g protein = 5 Points)
3 cups mixed baby greens + 1/2 cup cucumbers + 1/2 cup mushrooms + 1/2
cup alfalfa spouts + 1/4 cup sweet peppers + 1/4 cup garbanzo beans +1
tbsp. raisins + 2 tbsp. feta cheese + 1 tsp. sunflower seeds + 2 tbsp. fat-free
honey mustard dressing
The combo of veggies, along with feta, raisins and sunflower seeds make this
a decadent treat that tastes super-high-cal but isn't. Hate sprouts? Feel free
to garnish with a handful of shredded carrots instead! Mmmmmm!
Cobby-licious Salad Supreme
(Entire salad: Approx. 285 calories, 7g fat, 785g sodium, 30g carbs, 8g fiber,
8g sugars, 24g protein = 5 Points)
3 cups romaine + 1/2 cup tomatoes + 1/2 cup cucumbers + 1/4 cup chopped
eggs + 2 tbsp. imitation bacon bits + 1/4 cup kidney beans + 1/4 cup chunk
chicken + 2 tbsp. fat-free blue cheese dressing
This cobb-inspired salad ROCKS! With eggs, bacon bits and bleu cheese, it's
hard to believe that this one comes in at under 300 calories, but it does.
We're still FLIPPING over Wish-bones entire Salad Spritzer line. Now that
there are SEVEN flavors in the line, there's definitely one to satisfy whatever
craving you may have. Our favorites these days are the Asian Flair (which
are the BEST on homemake Asian chicken salads) and the Caesar Delight,
which can save your caesar salad hundreds of calories and dozens of fat
grams! These spritzable dressings have just one calorie a spray. Insane!
