I went to a bridal shower and two salads got high remarks. Everyone loved them.
SALAD # !
Cherry tomatoes, cut in half, (you can use regular tomatoes. The presentation is nicer with cherry tomatoes) Cucumbers, diced small (if using pickling cucumbers, leave the peel on) Orange, red and yellow peppers, diced small Green onion, chopped red onion, chopped FETA cheese, diced small MINT, chopped fine (optional)
And here are the two ingredients that made this salad gorgeous:
MANDARIN ORANGES (from a can) DRIED CHERRIES (or CRANBERRIES)
Lemon juice, olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Mix all and pour over salad just before you serve it. Mix well (refrigerate leftovers)
Carrots, peeled and grated FINE in the FOOD PROCESSOR Sweet shredded coconut (or unsweetened shredded coconut and adding your own sweetener Orange juice ( (fine from a jar. Fresh orange juice (in season) will taste better)
Mix all and refrigerate.
I made the second salad and I eat it when I want something sweet or when I'm hungry.
I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!
