We love to eat salad in the summertime, and I love the ease of this salad. I can't remember exactly where I read the idea of this salad, but I know it was in some Weight Watchers materials.
Here's how to throw it together: Take salad greens (I used a bag of premixed salad today), add in tomatoes, olives, grated cheese, avocado, cilantro, green onion, etc. Then, add in a can or two of chili. (That's the idea I read in the WW materials.) Use vegetarian if you'd like to keep the fat content down. Add salsa and sour cream if desired. Serve with tortilla chips, or use some tortilla strips, like the ones pictured above. Yum! It's a filling meal and one that doesn't require heating up the oven.
What meals do you like to fix when the weather gets hot?
Thankful thought: Thanks for sunshine, summer vacations, and salads.
