Sunshine Salad

The sun was shining so brilliantly this morning, I was inspired to come up with something orange-flavored and colorful for our lunch today.  I call it Sunshine Salad. 

Sunshine Salad
Makes 2 servings
  • 1 cup garbanzo beans
  • 1 navel orange, peeled and sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Tbs chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup of cucumber, sliced thinly and slivered

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • heavy dashes of salt, cinnamon, and cumin 
  1. Mix all salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a separate, small bowl.  Then pour over the salad ingredients and stir to blend.
  3. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  4. Divide into 2 bowls to serve.
Most of the salad ingredients are zero point veggies and fruit.  The beans must be counted, of course, along with the dressing ingredients.

Per serving, without zero point vegetables and fruit.

If you put all the ingredients into the Recipe Builder on the Weight Watcher web site, it will take all of the ingredients into the equation to calculate the P+ values, so I have done that as well.

Per serving, all ingredients.
