Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    65g romaine lettuce
    50g roasted beets
    50g cherry tomatoes (about 6)
    50g fresh blueberries (about a handful)
    1 oz crumbled goat cheese
    2 oz canned tuna in water (about 1/4 cup)

Directions

I use a kitchen scale to make this salad and it makes preparation very quick and easy. It is so tasty, it needs very little dressing, and only 1 tbsp of your favorite low cal dressing will do.
Simply add ingredients, toss and enjoy. Easy to pack for a car ride, work, the beach, etc.
**To roast beets: Cut off greens, scrub with veggie brush. Wrap loosely with foil and bake in the oven 375 degrees for 1 hr 15 min. Cool to room temp, peel skin and slice into 1/4 inch slices. You can use golden or red beets or a combination of the two. Store in refrigerator.
Optional: Add a few raw pecans for additional flavor if you have room for extra fat for the day!

    This is so awsome !!!!!! The only time to make it is roasting the beets but you can it ahead and still make it up in about 5 mins. Never ever thought of putting beets and blueberries together but then again they are both sweet. Thank you very much for coming up with the combo. It's an A+++ - 8/20/08

    I will try this one, but probably change the cheese - I'm not into goat cheese, too much. Someone else said bleu cheese - might try that. I'll try it with the tuna, but may also try shredded turkey. And I love pickled beets - may try those instead of regular. Interesting combination of foods. - 8/20/08
