Meat, Egg or CarbsPerServing:7g total Effort:Easy Ingredients: ½ pound chicken, beef, or ham – cooked and cut according to preference OR 12 ounces tofu, firm drained very well OR 6 largeeggs 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 tablespoon yellow mustard ¼ cup chopped onion ¼ cup chopped celery 2 tablespoons capers – drained 3 tablespoons dill pickle – chopped How to Prepare: Note: chop meats to desired chunkiness after cooking. Leftovers work great! In a large bowl, mix desired main ingredient with remaining ingredients.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. I like to add a littlehorseradish sauce to the ham or roast beef salad for some zip. For egg salad: Mix everything but the eggs well. Chop eggs to desired chunkiness and fold into mixed ingredients. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce if desired. A squeeze of lemon also goes well. For eggless salad: Mix everything but the tofu Squish tofu with your hands or with a fork until it breaks apart. Fold in with remaining ingredients.Eggless salad should sit for at least an hour, refrigerated, before serving. Lemon or a few drops soy sauce work great in tofu based salads. **personal note*** Process meats find in a food processor for more of a ‘spread’ consistency. Don’t process with the remaining ingredients until you get the meat broken down almost to the size you want. The spreads work very well on lettuce leaves forroll-ups The chunky version works great over lettuce for a salad meal. NOTES : Counts for tofu and eggs not included in totals… tofu is 10 carbs, eggs 3.6. Blue Salad CarbsPerServing:20 Prep Time:15 Effort:Easy Ingredients: 2 heads of butterhead lettuce 6 oz.
