Very Good 4.1/5
(146 ratings)

Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.

A Simple Tasty Recipe with lots of lycopene and fiber. My husband isn't a tomato fan, so paste and puree make this appetizing for the picky eater.

When my mother told me she makes this recipe for lunch every day I didn't think it sounded too delicious. But then she made it for me and... yummy... the combination of flavors is surprisingly delicious and very healthy! Eat as a snack or in larger portions for lunch.

These are really low in fat and carbs and can be served in a bun or with a salad. Very tasty.

Will spread if you use the George Foreman Grill, normal skillet is fine.

The 3 C's-Crunchy Carolina Chicken Salad
Very Good 4.3/5
(19 ratings)

This is a makeover of Ruby Tuesdays Carolina Chicken Salad, with a calorie intake at over 1,000, is no way for any American to eat, there has to be a better way.
I chose to add flavorful, healthier ingredients to pack this "3C Salad" with character, class, and crunch. 3C Salad is quickly becoming a family favorite for lunch.

This is a great low calorie portable lunch or dinner. On cold days I pop it into the school microwave for 15 seconds- which melts the parmesan and makes a nice warm treat! Add some jalapenos or pepper to spice it up!
