Salads fit perfectly in today's busy lifestyles because they are healthy, low-calorie and quick to make.
Grapes fit perfectly into salads because they add natural sweetness, color, texture and flavor. At only 100 calories per cup, grapes are a dieter's delight.
Combined with a variety of fruits and vegetables, they truly create a glorious salad for every occasion.
1 cup seedless grapes
1 cup orange segments
1 large apple, cut up
1 large pear, cut up
Toss all ingredients together. Serve in one of the following ways: Serve on lettuce-lined plate with cheese wedges. Serve on lettuce-lined plate with scoop of cottage cheese. Serve in glass dish with scoop of your favorite sherbet on top. Serve in bowl topped with your favorite yogurt.
Makes 6 servings.
2 cans lima beans or butter beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can pork and beans
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 pound bacon
1/2 pound hamburger
1/2 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Saut onion, bacon and hamburger until slightly cooked. Add beans and remaining ingredients. Bake 1 1/2 hours at 375 degrees. Add more liquid if necessary. I like to mix it all together and put in the crockpot for a few hours.
Herb Roasted Potatoes
4 cups thickly sliced, unpeeled, red raw potatoes
1/2 cup onion, sliced
1/3 cup fat-free Italian dressing

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray an 8x8-inch baking dish with olive oil-flavored cooking spray. Layer potatoes and onion in prepared baking dish. In a small bowl, combine Italian dressing and mustard. Drizzle mixture evenly over potatoes. Toss gently to coat potatoes. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
