Healthy Cobb Salad

June 7, 2010

Cobb Salad doesn’t have to be bad for you!

Lettuce- I like a mix of green leaf and red leaf

kalamata olives


avocado- a small amount

low-fat feta

egg whites

chicken breasts or white fish


2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

1 tsp honey

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp Dijon mustard- we add more

juice of one lemon

Whip it all up with a wisk.  So yummy!  Really I just wing how much of each ingredient I put in, but I know some people need exact amounts.  I am light handed with the olive oil and heavier handed with the mustard and vinegar.


Baja Fish Tacos

October 14, 2008

2 T taco seasoning
1 T lime juice
1 T orange juice
1 lb mahi mahi or other firm whitefish fillets, cut into bite-sized
1 T vegetable oil (I left this out)
2 cups sliced green cabbage
1/2 cup chopped green onions (I used red)
1/2 reduced fat sour cream (I use the fat free kind with the cow
pattern on
the tub)
8 (6 inch) corn tortillas
8 lime wedges

Combine 1st 3 ingredients in a medium bowl.  Add fish, toss to coat.
Cook over medium high heat in large non-stick skillet – about 5 minutes.  Combine cabbage, onions, and sour cream in a medium bowl.  Warm tortillas – spoon about 1/4 cup cabbage mixture in tortilla, divide fish evenly.

Makes 4 servings.

Julie’s Notes-I didn’t have lime wedges, so put lemon juice in the
cabbage mixture.  We used flour tortillas.  You’ll have to figure the
points out depending on the kind of tortillas you use – they’re so different.  The recipe says that there are 4 servings of 2 tacos each, each has 320 calories, 9 grams fat, 4.6 grams fiber, which is 6 points for 2.  Again – it all depends on your tortilla.   To save calories, I put enough filling for 2 on one tortilla and ate it like a tostada. 🙂  The whole thing took about 10 minutes.
