I've been on a salad kick lately for supper. I LOVE throwing a bunch of fruit and vegetables into a bowl and having at it. They're so filling and satisfying, yet have so few calories. I feel like I'm adding ingredients for a half hour and still the total is under 200 calories! I thought tonight's salad was really pretty. It had spinach (I always use spinach as a base), onion, green pepper, celery, shredded carrots, broccoli, cucumber, summer squash, tomato and strawberries with sesame-ginger dressing. I usually have a sandwich on the side and tonight was no exception. An egg scrambled with an egg white and onion, stuffed into a pita with tomato and guacamole. I used to add cheese also, but, true to my word, I didn't buy any more cheese at the market today. With the tasty onion and creamy guac though, I honestly didn't miss it.
What do you like for supper in the summer?
