M-J’S LOW-CARB, HIGH PROTEIN LUNCHEON SALAD

Bacon bits, 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese, an avocado cut into pieces, Romaine lettuce and almond-coated white-meat chicken combine to make an elegant, high-protein luncheon dish.

I top this low-carb salad with home-made ranch dressing, which I create from mayonnaise, buttermilk, and/or sour cream, mixed with onion and garlic powders and dried parsley. When I don’t have the powdered onion and garlic, I will dice bits of fresh ones very fine and sauté them before mixing with the other ingredients. Add salt and green or white pepper to taste, then blend with a wire whisk.

Jalapeño Hors d’Oeuvres

♥Sumptuous and Spicy Stuffed Jalapeños♥
Cream Cheese is blended with crushed almond crackers, chile powder and celery salt, then pressed into halved and seeded jalapeño peppers. Placed in a baking dish and baked in a 400F oven until lightly browned, these cocktail offerings can be served warm or room-temperature. Besides tasting great, stuffed piquant peppers prepared this way are low in carbohydrates.
