Did you see the Sparks recipe calculator? It's one of my favorite Spark tools. Your recipe looks great, but when you see the fat in your recipe, you might want to use half mayo and half plain yogurt.

Hey all! I made this absolutely delicious chicken salad recipe for my family. Next time I will leave out the cashews for me but I wasn't thinking. I have no idea how to track this. Any suggestions? I had less than a half of a cup on my sandwich for lunch.

Cashew Chicken Salad
1/2 cup fat free mayonnaise—60 calories
6 tablespoons honey mustard—180 calories
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar—0 calories
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper
3 cups cubed cooked chicken—550 calories (**Total guess)
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced—4 calories
1/2 cup chopped cashews—320 calories
1/4 cup chopped red onion—10 calories

** I can't find my food scale so I'm eyeballing everything until I do. I know 4 oz of chicken is like the size of a deck cards.

What about other nutrients such as fiber, sodium and whatnot? How are homemade recipes tracked?

Thank you in advance! :)
Jenny
