I have been on a dinner and dessert kick lately so I figured it was time to present a healthy and nutritious meal option for a change. If you are dairy free then skip the cottage cheese. This Tuna Salad in Canteloupe Bowl is not only healthy and nutritious, but is a great choice for a simple luncheon get together with friends. The kiddos will also love this blend of flavors and the soft easy to chew fruits. The culinary treat you taste as the sweet, cold and sour flavors hit your palate at different intervals is like none other. Add some raisins to the tuna salad or if you decide, walnut chips also add a unique texture. A slice or two of avocado adds a burst of color to the presentation.
Cucumber, Tomato and Red Onion Salad becomes a great choice for a low calorie, healthy and low fat lunch. The blend of flavors from the fresh vegetables compliment each other with a burst of freshness that only this combination can provide. The vinegar and oil dressing coat each bite with a healthy addition to the salad.
This cucumber and onion salad is not your average side dish. And it comes with a twist! To make the cucumbers a bit softer and the flavors marinate deep into the dish you need to add boiling water to the mix and then refrigerate until cold. In just over an hour you can serve them with the meal.
