3 Chicks and a Rooster

We may seem like one ordinary family, but we are one unique chicken coop!

>Summer is just around the corner and this is the time for some vibrant colored food. Best yet will be those dishes, whether main or side dishes, that are no cook recipes.

Here are a couple that I absolutely love and will be making a lot this summer!

Broccoli Slaw

(From Trader Joe’s)

1 12 oz package broccoli slaw

¼ cup raisins or cranberries

¼ cup walnuts or almonds

1 cup diced apples

½ cup of your favorite dressing. ( I used fat-free sun-dried tomato dressing. You can use up to 1 cup of dressing if you prefer more dressing.)

In a medium-sized bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add dressing and mix thoroughly.

Serving size 1 1/4 cup.

Serves 4

* I usually use this as a side dish and eat 1/2 a cup. In WW land that is a 1 point side. I get this 1 point though with using the fat free dressing above. Different dressing yields different points. *

Black Bean, Avocado, Tomato Salad

(From WW Hit The Spot cookbook)

1 (151/2 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed

12 grape tomatoes, halved

½ Hass avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into ½-inch pieces

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tsp olive oil

¼ tsp salt

2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)

Toss together in a serving bowl.

Serving size ¾ cup.

Serves 4

*The 3/4 cup is about 1.5 points. I am sensitive to all things spicy so the jalapeno is omitted and still tastes yummy*

*** If you are a fellow WW always check point values yourself. These points are what I have figured out. ***
