Veggie Greek Salad
This is a great recipe for you to get in lots of veggies and not have to eat lettuce which has not much nutritional value. This recipe makes 8 servings and the calories are mostly dependent on how much and what type of dressing you use. If you use 10 oz of regular Newman's Own Greek Dressing then it is 6 Weight Watcher points per serving, if you use 8oz of Kraft light Zesty Italian then it is only 3 points. I made it with the one cup of zesty italian and it had plenty of dressing and was very good. You can make this in 15 minutes; all you have to do is cut veggies. The longer it soaks in the dressing, the better it tastes.
1 head of broccoli
1 head of cauliflower
2 cups cherry tomatoes
6 oz can sliced olives drained
6 oz tomato basil feta (crumbled)
2 TBSP Purple Onion (optional)
Zesty Italian or Greek Dressing
Chop veggies, mix in other ingredients, toss with dressing and chill overnight or for at least 2 hours.
