I forgot to add a key ingredient to the Red and Green salad.
Add the grated rind (zest) of and organic orange to the dressing.
It won’t add sugar or carbs, and it really adds to the flavor. Don’t eat the orange unless you want to go to symptom-vile...but DO enjoy the Christmasy flavor the orange zest adds to the mix.
Red and Green Salad
One head of broccoli, washed and trimmed down to tiny pieces
Three fourths cup of raw cranberries washed and cut into halves or fourths
One half cup of chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
Chopped cooked chicken breast
One fourth cup of olive oil
Three tablespoons of lemon juice
Stevia to taste
Mix the three dressing ingredients in a bowl and add the cranberries. Mix them around with a fork until well coated, and then let them sit a few minutes.
Mix the remaining salad ingredients in a larger bowl, and then pour the dressing / cranberry mixture in and toss.
Make sure to put enough stevia in the dressing to offset the bitterness of the cranberries...just taste as you go. This is tasty and the flavors remind me of Christmas. It’s good as a side without the chicken too.
