I have a short and sweet post for you. I just got home from a day in Chicago at the Self magazine Workout in the Park event. I had so much fun, but I am so tired and ready to soak in a hot tub for awhile.
What I have for you today is one of my favorite go to salads. It’s great for lunch or as a side with dinner. The best thing is that it is so simple to make. I found it in the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet cookbook. Here’s how you make it.
1/2 large sweet onion
1 medium cucumber, sliced
2 cups grape tomatoes
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, sliced
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/3 cup fat free Ialian salad dressing
Arrange onion, cucumber, tomatoes, basil and mozzarella on salad plates. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately. This makes 6 servings.
The good news is that each serving is only 85 calories with 4 grams of fat. I think you’ll like it.
