What's on My Plate - Eating Out

Happy National Nutrition Month.  Today is National What's on MyPlate Day.  Share a picture of your plate to friends and family on your facebook, twitter and blog pages.  Here is a picture of my delicious Salmon Nicoise from the Newell House.  It has all the food groups and so yummy!  Fish two times per week to ensure adequate Omega 3 fatty acids to reduce the risk of heart disease.  Asked for the dressing on the side.  The flavors were wonderful together!  If I made this at home I would use less oil to brown the potatoes and probably make a smaller portion.   Did not feel guilty eating this delicious meal.

Cindy’s Cauliflower and Broccoli Salad

1 head cauliflower separated into small flowerets
1 bunch broccoli separated into flowerets
1 red pepper, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 cup sweet pea pods chopped no strings

1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/3 cup apple vinegar
1/4 cup sugar or sugar substitute

Mix first six ingredients together in large bowl; combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.  Pour dressing over veggies and toss to coat vegetables. Make at least 2 hours in advance so that flavor can be absorbed by the vegetables.  Experiment with different vegetable combinations.  Try adding fresh cilantro, basal or mint and be sure to write down your favorite combinations. Yum!
