Low in carbs, though this is high in fat..... taco salad. I make taco meat, usually using the Ortega blue mix and ground beef. Bed of shredded lettuce onions, tomato, toss with lemon and pepper. put a layer of taco flavored meat on plater, top with shredded mexican blend cheese and put in microwave to melt cheese. Slide this atop bed of lettuce, top with fresh salsa, grape tomatos, red onion and dollop of sour cream. You can grab a handful of tortilla chips (low carb or not) and shred these over the top... it's fine with as little as five taco chips. Very high in fat, though; eat only occasionally.
I bild my own salads at an buffet. Unlike others here I don't put lettus on it (DON'T LIKE IT) but do put alot of other really good vegatables like mushrooms & onions (and that just names a few) Pit some Light Itiallian on it and ENJOY!!!! (You won't be the only one that thinks I crazy to do that my husband does too LOL)
Gorgonzola, pecans, and balsamic vinaigrette over spring mix
Cobb Salad (the BLT Cobb at Wendy's is great if you are in a hurry)
Tuna, cheddar, and a little bit of black beans
Here's the salad I always get from Subway: Tuna, spinach, lettuce, tomato, black olives, banana peppers, vinegar and oil
- Feta cheese
- Red onions
- Roma tomatoes
- Black olives
- Pine nuts or slivered almonds
- A handful of croutons, for crunch
- Olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or red wine vinegar
- And spices: salt, black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, a bit of sage powder, thyme, and rosemary, etc.
If I have avocado around, I will add that, too. Or pumpkin seeds/sunflower seeds.
I start out using one of Dole's salad bags... they have some cheap ones for like 99 cents, sometimes... so that I don't have produce going to waste...
Wow! Thanks for all the good ideas. Please keep them coming. I'm trying to gather a month's worth (20 working days) so that I have some sack lunch ideas.
Was at Whole Foods yesterday and found a really interesting salad roll. It looked like a Thai spring roll because it was wrapped in a rice spring roll wrapper, but it was put together and cut like sushi. Inside there was avocado, thinly julienned vegetables and shrimp--no rice noodles. Yum! They packaged it with soy sauce and wasabi.
If I can just figure out how to make it at home. Hmmm...
