We had family over for a pool day last weekend and everyone brought a dish. My aunt made sure to tell me she would bring something healthy, which I really appreciated! Especially since we were ordering pizza (because sometimes convenience is important when entertaining) so it would balance it out. I am always touched when someone goes out of their way to bring a lighter dish or when someone makes sure to tell me what's being served somewhere ahead of time. When you're on a weight loss journey these little things truly are SO helpful!
She brought this delicious salad, but you could use it as a dip, as a filling to a wrap, as a topping on meat..the possibilities are endless! I asked her if I could share the recipe and she said of course! (She's a great lady!) The best part about this recipe is that it doesn't require any mayo, yogurt or sour cream so it's healthy, but also does not require refrigeration! I only have 1 photo, because I didn't make this myself, but it looks so good that I think 1 photo is all you need!
