Usually when I come home from work and working out, the last thing I feel like doing is making a fancy dinner. If I put together a salad or some stir-fry… chances are that I won’t be writing about it on the blog.
With that being said, this “ordinary” weeknight dinner salad was just too pretty and too delicious to not brag about!
Recipe by: It’s Good to be the Cook
Makes 1 Serving @ 5 WW Points
1/4 Head Iceberg Lettuce, torn
1/4 Champagne Mango
1 slice Bacon, cooked crisp
6 Grape Tomatoes
4 Green Beans
Green Onion, Sea Salt & Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Sunflower Seeds
1/4 lb Cooked Shrimp
Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar
1. Chop all of the ingredients except the shrimp. Mix in a large bowl with the iceberg lettuce. Pull the tails off of the shrimp and top the mixed salad.
2. Dress the salad with some chopped green onion, a sprinkle of sea salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Sprinkle w/ a teaspoon of Sunflower Seeds. Drizzle w/ Strawberry (or plain) Balsamic Vinegar.
Loved this salad! I am not a big fan of raw veggies, so my salads tend to rely on the heavier, less healthy items such as chicken, cheeses, croutons, nuts, etc. This salad was the perfect combination of the “good” stuff & the “bad” stuff. I don’t put oil on my salads when I use Vinegar, and trust me, you aren’t missing it. The touch of salt and pepper enhances the flavors and makes everything delish!
As ginormous as this salad is, believe it or not, it only racks up FIVE Weight Watchers Points. FIVE! OMG!
