A Simple Salad That’s Low in Calories and Fat!

Posted by rhondascooking on September 27, 2008

This week I decided to try and eat salad without oil because I am really trying to reduce my calories and fat intake.  So, I decided to try something a little different with my salad this week and it turned out great!  For the first time ever, I didn’t use oil on my salad, but instead I replaced it with Sabrosa Gourmet Salsa and it was great! This simple substitution is a 30 – 50% reduction in calories and fat without the oil.  Enjoy!


Southwestern Salad:

Serving size: 1 salad

3 cups romaine lettuce

3 tablespoons shredded carrots

¼ cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

½ medium avocado, seeded and chopped

2 tablespoons Sabrosa Fire-Roasted Gourmet Salsa (or any salsa)

3 tablespoons fresh corn kernels (optional), rinsed and drained


Toss all ingredients in a large salad bowl and serve. If desired, you can divide this recipe in half.    [Nutrition Facts: 250 Cal; 15g Fat (10 Mono, 2 Poly, 2 Sat); (13g Fiber; 3g Sugar; 7g Protein; 240% Vit A; 100% Vit C; 10% Calcium; 20% Iron]
