Granny’s Salad For Sugar Busters

3 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled & dices

2 stalks celery

1 carrot

1/2 cup golden raisins

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

fresh green lettuce leaves ( no ice berg lettuces, please)

Mix all together with this yogurt dressing ( or experiment with your own dressings)


1/2 cup plain non fat yogurt

2 T. Olive Oil

2 T. Honey

2 T. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp mustard

salt and pepper to taste

Blend together well. Pour over above mixture. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to chill. Serve on a bed of fresh lettuce.

Orange-Kiwi Fruit Salad

1 head romain lettuce, torn

3 kiwi, peeled and sliced

11 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained

1 large red onion, sliced

3 oz. blue cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Optional: croutons or chinese noodles

Combine them all together and then toss with this dressing or any of your own:


1/2 cup olive oil

1/3 cup lime juice

3 T. apple cider vinegar

3 T. sugar free orange marmalade

salt and pepper to taste

Mix and shake thoroughly. You will get about 1 1/3 cup yield from this recipe. I do not normally use it all. I stretch it out for 2 luncheon salads. That is enough for me. You decide what is right for you.
