The go-to food for me is a Caesar-type salad that's quick to throw together and is yummy. I cook up the chicken ahead of time (1 tsp olive oil, heated & add chicken cut in bite sized pieces - season with cajun seasoning & cook til done), and keep the other ingredients (Parm. cheese, light caesar dressing & romaine lettuce) on hand. The recipe for this is in Spark Recipes under "Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad".
I love to serve this with Trader Joe's Everything Pretzel chips
Romano Cheese is saltier than Parmesean. Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Brie and Camebert cheeses are aged with penicillin, so if you are allegic to penicillin these may not be the best choice for you. Blue cheeses tend to be salty and sharp and get a smell that resembles stinky feet because of the mold & bacteria that grows on the cheese. When eating any of the blue cheeses remember the salt & your blood pressure. Try Munster, and there are 50 calories in the Low Fat, Low Salt Swiss.More in comments
