    Recipe Skinny Smoked Salmon Salad

    Less than 75 calories and very delicious! I used beech smoked salmon from Aldi, which is excellent value. This is so simple to make that it barely warrants a recipe, but I’m trying to compile a list of really low calories meals for my own use (lest I forget them) and thought others who are...

    Recipe Warm Yellow Bean Salad with Anchovy Dressing (low fat)

    I came across these yellow beans in the supermarket (imported from Kenya). They taste very similar to green beans but perhaps more 'musky'.

    Recipe Flageolet Vert & Radicchio ‘Bel Fiori’ Salad with Vegan Aioli

    Recipe Tabbouleh with Egg and Pickled Lemon

    A no cook recipe! Many recipes for Tabbouleh use a lot more parsley (or parsley/mint) than I have, often in a ratio of double the weight of herbs to the weight of dry bulgur. Personally. I prefer rather more grain but you can vary this to your taste. The dill adds a lovely fragrance here. I used...
