Busy days for Everyone lately...
I hope you'll be able to enjoy a pleasant day in the yard over this Memorial Day weekend. And, if you do, then I'm sure you'll try to do a little cooking on the grill. The meat isn't a problem, but finding healthy side dishes, especially if you're trying to go low carb, can be.
Here's two quick side salads that will happily accompany your grilled beef, chicken, or lamb (or zucchini steaks!)
Cottage Cheese with Tomatoes and Cucumber
1.5 lb. Container of Cottage Cheese
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Simply mix the above ingredients together, season with freshly ground pepper.
Romaine Lettuce with Hearts of Palm and Tomato
2 large heads of Romaine lettuce, chopped
1 14.5 oz. Can of Hearts of Palm, chopped, drained
Tomatoes- either 2, seeded and chopped, or ½ pint sliced grape or cherry tomatoes
Dressing: 1 part lemon juice to 1 part olive oil, whisked together
Toss ingredients with dressing together—remember the French and toss 40 times!
