Mediterranean Salmon Salad from Diet and Nutrition blog

I found this on a Diet and Nutrition blog and had to share. Enjoy

Recipe Repeat: Mediterranean Salmon Salad

Oh how I love this salad. I’ve posted this recipe in the past but I’ve been making it so often I just had to repost it.

We had friends over for dinner and when I asked what type of food they wanted the only request was “something healthy”. I knew exactly what to make. What I love is how easy this recipe comes together.

The first step is to make the recipe for Becky’s Dressing. I like to to make it about an hour before dinner so the flavors have time to blend.

Lucky for me I had a very eager kitchen helper. M told me it was her job to make the dressing perfect;)

While M stirred her little heart out, I placed the salmon under the broiler, boiled the orzo, and chopped up the onion, peppers, artichokes, & olives.

While the salmon was cooling I drained the orzo and poured 1/4 cup of dressing over it. I added the onion, feta, olives, artichoke, & peppers and mixed it all together. Next I gently mixed in a combo of baby spinach & arugula.

The last step was to top it with the shredded salmon.

I served it with the leftover dressing on the side and sliced French Bread.

I highly recommend making this for dinner. It’s delicious:)

Diabetic Cookbooks

Diabetic cooking and cookbooks will be the focus of this Blog. As I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 10 years ago, constantly I have searched for foods that I should eat. Even more frustrating was attempting to find recipes that I could use to cook the right foods. I am not much of a meat eater so the search has been more frustrating to find good recipes for vegetables that keep the carbohydrate content within the targeted range.

I have looked online for information and found it is very frustrating to want to control the disease but not sure, what you are eating is the right thing. I found a few recipes online and few books. I did have a session with the nutritional counselor at my doctor’s office. They were some help but as I said finding good food to eat that met my requirements was challenging.

I want to exchange ideas and help you find cookbooks that will help you cook the right foods. We really cannot eat fast food even the salads at the fast food are too large and many of the dressings contain high fructose corn syrup.

I hope that you will share your ideas and recipes. I plan to run a contest in September the best recipes will be featured on this Blog.

Lets find some tasty and exciting foods to cook!
