Mix Salad

Basics: Meat, Egg or else

CarbsPerServing:7g total

Effort:Easy

Ingredients:

½ pound chicken, beef, or ham – cooked and cut according to preference

OR

12 ounces tofu, firm drained very well

OR

6 large eggs 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

¼ cup chopped onion ¼ cup chopped celery

2 tablespoons capers –

drained 3 tablespoons dill pickle – chopped

How to Prepare:

Note: chop meats to desired chunkiness after cooking. Leftovers work

great! In a large bowl, mix desired main ingredient with remaining ingredients.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. I like to add a little horseradish sauce to

the ham or roast beef salad for some zip.

For egg salad: Mix everything but the eggs well. Chop eggs to desired

chunkiness and fold into mixed ingredients. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce

if desired. A squeeze of lemon also goes well.

For eggless salad: Mix everything but the tofu Squish tofu with your hands

or with a fork until it breaks apart. Fold in with remaining ingredients.

Eggless salad should sit for at least an hour, refrigerated, before serving.

Lemon or a few drops soy sauce work great in tofu based salads.

**personal note***

Process meats find in a food processor for more of a

‘spread’ consistency. Don’t process with the remaining ingredients until you get the

meat broken down almost to the size you want. The spreads work very well on

lettuce leaves for roll-ups The chunky version works great over lettuce for a

salad meal.

NOTES : Counts for tofu and eggs not included in totals.
