BBQd Asparagus Salad

If you have never tried fresh asparagus - you really should try this delicacy. It is a world away from canned or frozen asparagus - so totally different that you wouldn't recognise it as the same thing!!

Healthy Cherry (or Peach) Muffins
(no ratings)

These are low fat and very healthy - I made them as cup cake size rather than larger muffin size - but I find that the smaller muffins are better.
Since they are low fat they tend to stick to the paper cases.

This is a very sweet food - it may be better without the dressing - or with less marshmallows and more grapes.

This makes a lovely side salad for grilled meat, especially chicken, or grilled fish.
It can also become a light lunch with the addition of 30g feta crumbled or diced into the mixture (see second picture)

Grapes Bruschetta
