Sounds really good. I'll get the ingredients at next week's shopping trip and give it a try.

Some liquids do accumilate (from the tomatoes), but it taste still great. I don't think it gets soggy.
Actually this huge amount is gone before one full week.

You may want to try this salad with a smaller amount and see how it works for you.
It's so good to have something so healthy ready in the refrigirator when I need it.

Mimi, that sounds great, and that chopper is fantastic. I've got a big electric version and it's a real pain to clean.
When you say you make a big bowl of salad for the week, does it not go soggy? How do you keep it fresh?

sounds yummy. I make my salad for the week too. But the original kind. I may kick it up with this. I also like my salad mixed with spiral noodles (pts) and mix it with kraft light vinegar and oil dressing.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

Our healthy guidelines workshop inspired me to go back to this wonderful salad.

It took me 12 minutes to prepare a HUGE amount for the whole week for me and my husband (with my wonderful hand manual chopper)

* I make a HUGE amount in advance for the whole week
* I eat as much as I want every day (I'be never gained weight by eating too many vegetables...)
* If I want, I add to the salad 2 teaspoons of olive oil when serving
* I like to eat it in room temperature (I keep the salad in the refrigirator
* Try it first with much smaller amounts, and if you like it, make it with these quantities

Ingredients

15 small firm roman tomates, chopped fine
3 large english cucumbers, unpeeled (or 15 small pickled cucumbers), chopped fine
1 bunch of green onions, chopped fine
1 bunch of parsley, chopped fine
1 bunch of baby dill, chopped fine
2-3 red peppers, chopped (adds lot of fiber), chopped fine
Juice from 3 lemons
(olive oil, optional, add when serving, if desired and count points/calories. The salad is great without olive oil but tastes even better with it)

I chop everything in my manual hand chopper. Unbelievable invention!

Mix all and refirgirate

Enjoy!

I can't say enough about this wonderful chopper

Mine is item # 16690
