it's a toss up

After having gastric bypass surgery, I tossed the salad right off the menu. I was really tired of eating so much lettuce after so many diets. But once in a while I enjoy them. My biggest challenge seems to be the dressing issue. How do you find a dressing that isn't full of sugar and fat. Well, I've found a solution—make them yourself. It's easy and I'm having so much fun being creative. 

Here are just a few of the salads I've added to my bariatric-friendly menu.

First, the Strawberry Chicken Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette. 

Then, I tried a Shrimp and Apple Salad with Old Bay and Dill Dressing. 


Next, (this one is my favorite) Chicken and Orange Salad with Mediterranean Spice and Citrus Marinade.
