Garden Bean Salad

Very quick meal. You can make this lower in salt by using home-cooked dry beans and defrosted frozen green beans instead of canned. I always keep cooked dried beans in zip lock bags in the freezer – they thaw under running water in about the same time it takes to open a can.

Chickenless “Chicken” Salad

The trick to this great salad is the marinating and baking of the tofu.

Edamame Salad

Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.

Cucumber Salad 2

This is a ‘to taste’ recipe where the volume of ingredients does not matter. If you’re making it for two people, you might use one large cucumber. It can also be made in bulk for a huge weekend BBQ crowd. It keeps well in the fridge, developing a stronger flavour every day.

Cucumber Salad

This is from one of the John and Mary McDougall cookbooks (Maximum Weight Loss I think). It is not 100% strict for Fuhrman because of the (small amount of) sugar, so feel free to modify or eliminate. I like this as a tasty alternative to lettuce-based salads.

    • Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad with Dried Cranberries and Cashews
      Dried cranberries, spiced cashews, pickled red onion, and a tangy maple-mustard vinaigrette make this shredded Brussels Sprouts salad sparkle with flavor.  Last week my husband and I had dinner with some friends at a local pub. Though most of the menu was your typical pub fare (or at least an American concept of it), it did […]
