The Quest: Sharing Salads

Here are some salads that I’ve been making for The Quest For Thinness.

Smoked Salmon & Slivered Almonds
This has become one of my favorite salads. It’s easy to make and quite filling.

3/4 Cup of Smoked Salmon – flaked
1/4 Cup of Slivered Almonds
2 Cups of Fresh Baby Spinach
1/4 Cup of Cheese (Sargento Bistro Blends Mozzarella & Asiago with Roasted Garlic)
3 Tbsp Sesame Ginger Dressing (Litehouse Foods)

Nutrition Facts: 401 Calories, 26 Grams of Fat (16 from Almonds), 40 Grams of Protein, 33 Grams of Carbs, 8 Grams of fiber

Berry Good Salad
This salad is really lite and I don’t consider it a “dinner” salad unless you’ve had a heavy lunch and want a lighter dinner. If you need more than what’s below, throw a grilled chicken breast on top. Also, with the juiciness of the pomegranate, try skipping the dressing. Options: Add a little cheese or slivered almonds for fun. Also throw in some fresh raspberries and/or blackberries!

2 Cups of Fresh Baby Spinach
1/4 Cup of Fresh Blue Berries
1/4 Cup of Fresh Strawberries
1/2 a Pomegranate
3 Tbsp of Raspberry Vinaigrette

Nutrition Facts: 246 Calories, 6 Grams of fat, 47.7 Carbs (from all the sweet fruit), 3 Grams of Fiber, 7 Grams of Protein
