I got rid of all the fat and kept all the flavour. This recipe is great served cold for hot summer days. I also use it as a hot side dish or better yet used to stuff peppers and Portobello mushrooms for a quick meal.
This is a RAW recipe and is a perfect summer meal. You can quickly heat the zucchini if you want this dish warm but don’t cook long or you’ll have a mushy mess. Don’t premix this salad with the sauce as it will become watery.

Adding steamed vegetables really bulks up the serving size while adding healthy greens. My favorite is bok choy but you can use any other leafy greens you have on hand.
The pesto is oil free but does contain nuts. The pesto recipe makes enough for two servings. So divide it up and freeze one serving or double the pasta and greens to serve two people.

Feel like pasta but it’s too stinking hot? Got zucchini you need to eat up. Here is the perfect recipe. This is a great salad for lunch or as a different kind of salad to take to a potluck.
Tip: You can blanch the noodles in boiling water for two minutes so you can serve this dish hot in winter.
Zucchini provides you with lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that promote healthy eyesight. They’re also a source of magnesium, folate and fiber.

I have altered some aspects of this recipe. These muffins a super hearty so they are more of a meal than a treat. They are great to take to work on a cold winter day. This recipe requires a food processor to process some of the ingredients.
*Note: Because the raisins are much more calorically dense, omit them if you are trying to lose weight.

I like this recipe when I want a fattening Caesar salad without the fat and salt. The bell pepper adds some additional color and flavor. You can top the salad with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour. And air-fried potato cubes or roasted chickpeas add a change in texture. I have adjusted this recipe to be oil and fat free.
You can buy pre-washed romaine lettuce in packages of three. The dressing makes enough to dress three salads. And one can of chickpeas can be divided into three parts as well. I eat this giant salad over three consecutive days.
Ingredients for Salad (1 serving)
Ingredients for the Dressing (3 servings)
*Note: Using a plastic knife to cut the Romaine stops it from going brown. Or hand ripping the lettuce also can reduce oxidation. If you will be eating this salad over several days, prepare you lettuce this way, but store it separate from the dressing until you are ready to serve.

COMPLIANT CAESAR CHICKPEAS
These are a great addition to your salad. They add extra protein and are tasty on their own. Use them on your salad or make this recipe for people that love snacking on nuts. It's a healthy low-calorie alternative.
When they are completely cool, store them in an airtight container at room temperature so they don’t get soggy.

This recipe is great if you want that pumpkin pie taste, but you have neither the time nor the energy to bother. It makes 4 big servings, and it is ready to eat in 15 minutes. This recipe is super healthy with tons of fiber from the dates, pumpkin, chia seeds and banana. There is no sugar, salt or oil in this guilt-free recipe.
This oil free dressing is delicious. It goes well on any salad, but it is particularly well with the Greek Inspired Tabouleh and the Complaint ‘Dry’ Greek Salad.
I have created this dressing with two versions. One is a standard dressing and the other is a creamy version.
