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 super-delicious chickpea spread is perfect as a dip for veggies; spread on whole wheat/whole grain toast or bagel and with thin cucumber slices; spread a thin layer on a wrap, add a light sprinkling of feta cheese, then add romaine, thin cucumber strips and three coarsely chopped kalamata olives - roll and enjoy!Submitted by LONESTARGIRL1

I’m a big fan of tuna salad sandwiches. They’re easy and quick to make, are relatively healthy, and are equally as good as an office lunch or in a picnic basket.
There are three key ingredients at work with this version. First off is the lemon juice and zest…it gives the tuna a light, summery flavor that hits immediately. Second is the toast…if you try it straight from the bowl, it just isn’t as good; you need a warm, dry piece of bread to help the flavors burst in your mouth. Third is the cottage cheese…you don’t taste it at all, but it makes the tuna salad so rich and creamy.
When visiting my friend Shelly, we took a long walk to the local farmers market and bought a variety of fresh summer squash and carrots. Since I love pan frying veggies and garlic, I thought we'd give this a try. It was super yummy, possibly higher in fat than I would like but you can use less olive oil.Submitted by DENA914
