Rabbit Food

I recently found out that I’m lactose intolerant (LI). I nearly started crying in the doctor’s office. For a girl who eats cheese and ice cream almost daily, this was a big devastation. It turns out that I can eat goat and sheep milk products, including Goat Cheese! I don’t know why I had never tried Goat Cheese before, but OMG I love that stuff! Thank goodness I can still eat some sort of cheese.

Hubby and I try to eat salads and we used to get the prebagged Caesar salad mix. Since I’m LI, that wouldn’t work anymore so we had to come up with a substitute. This salad has been through a few revisions and we finally found a version that we both LOVE. We eat this salad almost every night.

Super Salad (by ME!) – 4 WW pts – makes 3 servings
1 bag of spring mixed greens
1 granny smith apple – chopped
3 Tbsp of sliced almonds
1/8 cup dried cranberries
1 oz Goat Cheese
6 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Italian Dressing

Mix everything in a big bowl and serve!

I also make this to take for lunch. I put the chopped apple and salad dressing in a small tupperware bowl. The dressing keeps the apple from browning. I put everything else in another tupperware bowl and voila! No gross soggy leftover lettuce or brown apple.

Note: the dressing makes up the majority of the points, so if you want to go lower, use a different dressing. We just love the TJ’s dressing and at $2/bottle our budget loves it too.

    What a great idea for using up bananas…something different from the normal old banana bread! Thanks for posting!

    What a neat recipe! I’ve got some bananas at home that are about to turn brown . . . they may just end up in these bars . . .
