"Save My Life" veggie salad

Recommended Posts

Fresh Veggie Salad

 

 

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped

3 tomatoes, chopped

3 stalks celery, chopped

½ large sweet onion, chopped

½ red pepper, chopped

½ green pepper, chopped

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed (I like Mrs. Grimes)

1 can corn, drained

 

Mix all the above ingredients and chill. I put Ken’s Sweet Vidalia Onion dressing on this when I serve it, but you could use your favorite dressing. If you put the dressing on and then have leftovers it gets too watery. You may have to drain it a bit after you chill it because the veggies release liquid—especially the tomatoes. This will last in the frig. up to a week if you leave the tomatoes out.

 

Because of all the fiber, I count this as 0 pts. per cup without the dressing. Just add the pt. value for whatever dressing you use. I love this salad and keep a big bowl in the frig. all the time. My husband likes to eat it for breakfast mixed with cottage cheese.

I made this 2 weeks ago and we loved it. a 1-cup serving with dressing was llike a meal in itself. It makes a lot, but if you keep it in the fridge and drain it daily, it will keep for a week or better. Definitely a keeper and great for picnics also.:buddysmoo

I made it tonight. I wasn't really sure what to expect because I am not a big veggie person and I detest the smell of cucumbers....but I decided that I must give this a try. While looking for the Sweet Vidalia dressing, I found some Paul Newmans Lite Sesame Ginger dressing at the store for less fat and decided to give it a try. The results??? I am SOLD. That stuff is good! My dog was even eating those veggies!! I can't believe how good it was!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Another idea instead of dressing:

 

Use the juice of one lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper.....YUM!

I often use small zuchinni instead of cucumbers, you get all the goodness without the wet and I love zuchinni.

 

Veggie salads are a fantastic way to fill up and stay satisfied

wow this salad is good. I didn't have any dressing so I mixed some banana pepper juice, vineger and garlic salt (the veggie marinade my dad uses)...so good. Everyone has to try it.

I made this salad and took it to my WW meeting--BOY was it a HIT! I added some finely chopped broccoli and a zuccini and put the following marinate on it:

 

4Tbls olive oil

1/2 cup white vinegar

Juice of 4 Key Limes

6 pkts Splenda

1 Tbls poppy seeds

Salt and Pepper to taste

 

This dressing has a bright flavor that really flavors the dish. I think it's good by adding it when you make the salad. Try it!

Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.

:bcb_up Wow! I just made this salad and I KNOW it will be a staple for me. I don't think it will need a salad dressing, just seasoned salt and/or ground pepper. Also, I love the idea of mixing it with cottage cheese. I can also see putting it on fresh spinach leaves. I am also thinking of substituting canned garbanzo beans for the black beans. (Edited to say, that using canned garbanzo beans works well.)

 

This should helps the munchies.

Thanks,

Tinka

Looks tasty esp if you really have no points left and are hungry. I did have to cringe at the idea of mixing it with cottage cheese though LOL

This is very similar to a recipe I make, but also added is bulgur. For dressing, I use ff Italian with some balsamic vinegar. It is core and is very filling. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
