Nancy's Easy Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt Sauce to Die For!)
Very Good 4.9/5
(40 ratings)

I fell in love with tzatziki the first time I tried it and was on a quest to find the recipe that included those ingredients that pleased my particular palate best. This recipe is low-fat, high-protein, nutritious, smooth, Mediterranean, refreshing, light, and hopefully the best you've ever had!

I found this recipe in a cookbook around 10 yrs ago and love making it, I know make it by heart. You can change the type of Feta cheese, add olive oil to make it stick and also change white rice to brown rice.. Make them into small balls, if you make the balls bigger than the size of a lime it takes longer to cook. Great side dish, or a vegetarian meal.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(6 ratings)

NOTE: The high salt content is due to the pickling process. Most of the salt is rinsed off!
Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from a variety of vegetables, which are salted and then mixed with hot pepper flakes, onion, garlic and spices.

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche
Very Good 4.5/5

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

Make this chicken the next you have company for dinner, and they'll swear you hired caterers. It tastes like it came from a restaurant, but for much less money and effort.

Great Crockpot meal for a cookout, gathering or winter meal.

1/2 of the items listed for this recipe are NOT in the Spark People database so I had to use what was in there which made the recipe outrageous in most of the nutrition information. I used MUCH HEALTHIER selections!
