Miss Polly’s Mediterranean Live Long and Prosper Salad

Not only is this salad beautiful to look at but it’s really wonderful to taste too and enjoy and savor, because you will be for a while as it’s pretty large salad. 

When you get done eating this you will not be hungry for a long time. Included in it are some of today’s superfoods of tuna that’s very high in protein and good for your brain, and high in selenium. Then joining the quartet are chickpeas which are very high in fiber and protein, and feta cheese, which is very low in fat in calories for the most part.

  • Good quality kitchen scale put your bowl that you’re going to eat in on it first before turning it on.
  • Set your scale to ounces and measure out 2 oz of baby organic spinach, filling and tell you’ve got 2 Oz.
  • Zero out your scale again, and then fill your bowl until it says 2 oz feta cheese.
  • So your scale to grams now and then fill it with chickpeas until it reads 130 grams.
  • Open 1 Starkist low sodium tuna packet that is 130 G. (You don’t have to weigh this. It’s already premeasured in single serving packages that you simply tear open.

1 tablespoon of pine nuts, used Trader Joe brand.

  • 2 teaspoons of Good Seasons Italian salad dressing. The recipe I used was made with half water and half oil, so you can use twice as much of it. The dreswing adds richness and healthy omega-3 fatty acids to your salad yet still captures the flavor of the dressing.
  •  I made my Good Seasons Italian dressing with extra virgin olive oil which is really good for you. You can also make it with grapeseed oil which has a very high amount of vitamin e in it, Pompeian brand has 25% vitamin E Period a huge difference over olive oil.
  •  Without the salad dressing it comes in at 430 calories.
