Sizzling Summer Eating Strategies

This time of year, I find myself eating a lot of cold salads paired with some sort of meat off the grill.. anything to avoid cooking inside, right?!

Other ways to beat the heat while still eating well include making regular use of your crockpot, as well as cooking outdoors whenever possible. Portable propane camp stoves and toaster ovens can be set up and used outside, enabling you to still bake and roast your FOOD, but not yourselves. (Be sure to obey all local fire regulations during times of extreme heat and/or fire danger.)

I hope you enjoy this simple salad recipe from Cooking TLC: Truly Low Carb Cooking Volume 1. Pair it with any sort of meat or fish for a tasty and complete summer meal.

Rainbow Salad

  • 16 ounces 'Rainbow Salad' mix: julienned mix of broccoli hearts,
    cauliflower hearts, carrots, red cabbage (450 gm)
  • 1 cup shredded or cubed cheese (240 ml)
  • 2 cups mayonnaise (480 ml)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (60 ml)
  • 4 Tb. minced fresh parsley , or 2 Tb. dry
      (60 ml fresh or 30 ml dry)
  • 2 Tb. Splenda Granular (30 ml)
  • 1 tsp. onion powder (5 ml)
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt (5 ml)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (2.5 ml)
  • 1 tsp. black pepper (5 ml)
  • 2 Tb. heavy whipping cream (30 ml)
Rainbow Salad Simply toss vegetables and cheese in a large bowl. Whisk remaining ingredients separately, and adjust seasonings to taste. Mix and enjoy.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 8 servings, each: 434 cal, 45 g fat
(6 sat.), 4 g carb (1 g fiber), 0 g protein.

Variations: If you can't find the pre-mix, consider grating the individual ingredients for a rustic coleslaw, or just using broccoli slaw instead.

You might also enjoy adding:

Sliced green onions
Diced black olives
Sliced mushrooms
Chopped sweet or hot peppers
Chopped hardboiled eggs

Fresh Herbs: Almost any fresh herb would enliven and improve this salad! I particularly enjoy summer savory, cilantro, or dillweed.
