Healthy Greek Salad

To make a healthy version of a classic greek salad recipe, first dice red onion, then slice and quarter cucumber and halve cherry tomatoes . Top wth crumbled feta cheese, then mix equal parts of fresh torn mint and flat leaf parsley, olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar and pour over the salad.

Healthy Caesar Salad

A caesar salad is one of the most fattening salads you can eat but this is due to the deep fried croutons and going overboard on the cheese, so try making your own healthy caesar salad by making healthy croutons! Start by dry frying small cubes of wholemeal bread in a non-stick pan without any oil. Then, grab some romaine lettuce and cooked chicken or griddled asparagus. Then to make the healthy caesar dressing whisk together lemon, black pepper, olive oil and worcestershire sauce. To serve, finish with a few fresh shavings of parmesan cheese and your healthy croutons. Delicious!
