I agree the coleslaw can be improved. I love it but since I have found a recipe to make my own, I never buy it now. It's healthier and much more nutritious if you make it yourself.

Here is the recipe I use. It makes quite a lot so 1/6th of a portion might be enough for two.

I don't really see anything wrong with that salad if you want to up your fat a bit. 385 calories for a lunch is not out of order. I find when I eat a bigger lunch I am not as hungry at dinner so less likely to overeat. It looks like an awesome salad.

it looks pretty healthy. maybe use fish not packed in oil, and i'm not sure about the coleslaw. could you make your own dressing instead of using the coleslaw? I made some good dressing last night that was 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (NOT lowfat) 1 tsp dijon, salt and pepper, with a little milk to thin it out.

I'm not a big fish person, but they also have those precooked chicken breast strips that are great in salads, and that would go great with avocado and tomatoes.

It's a bit of a mixture, I'm afraid, but we both enjoyed it. Since I got wonderful feedback when I asked here about avocados, I'd like to hear what others think of this meal.
thank you all.
