  1. The pic shows no lettuce, but the recipe calls for it.

  2. im just counting my calories not doing ww.. how many calories is this salad if i have for lunch 1 cup?

  3. I am having a party this saturday and I want to make a healthy, low calorie meal… Which one do you suggest to make. I want one that I can easily make a large portion without spending a fortune.

    Thank for the help
    Jenna

  4. Old, I'll update now

  5. Gina,
    Is this 3.5 point with the old plan or the new points plus plan?
    Thanks!

  6. I love having foodies here! Welcome!! Glad you like it!! 🙂

  7. Awesome! Even the non-salad lovers ate this with vigour.
    A note to Gina: This is the best website ever! I am just starting my 5th week at WW and as a foodie this site tickles my taste buds and inspires me. Thank you so very much for offering these incredible recipes to all of us in need.

  8. Hi Gina,

    Nice fresh salad idea, great as always!

    P.s.
    Thanks for your stumble on my post! My visits were rising after that!

  9. That is one nice looking salad!

  10. As a side dish divided equally among 8 people, it’s 4 points. I made this for Easter dinner last week as a side dish for 10 and it was perfect, but if you have this for lunch, you probably get 4-5 servings. So for 4 people as a main course lunch it would be 7 points.

  11. how the heck is this only 4 points? looks delish!

  12. This looks so nice and light. Perfect for spring! Thanks for sharing it 🙂

  13. Beautiful, I love this kind of salad!

  14. Beautiful!!! Love this!!

  15. Oh yeah, this is the addition I need for my next spring party 😀

  16. Yum! You could even use turkey bacon to make it a bit lighter.

  17. Very pretty salad and looks delicious.

  18. LOVE your presentation, Gina! This is totally going on my Easter table (minus the meat, of course). Thanks!

  19. Is this one serving?
