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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

    Hi Gina,

    Nice fresh salad idea, great as always!

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

  5. 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.

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