Y’all. It’s hot in Virginia.
Like, surface of the sun, hot. Gimmie all the salads, hot. Too hot for cooking, hot. Maybe we should grill a burger or piece of chicken? Keep that heat outside of the house.
Noatmeal – I make two-serving packets and store them in the fridge. Add hot water and whatever toppings you like! Toppings: Strawberries, Walnuts, Unsweetened Coconut, Lily’s Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter
Keto Cobb Salad
We make Pioneer Woman’s dill dressing and substitute 1 T. Honey for the sugar. This adds a few more carbs than using stevia, but it’s worth it!
Greek Salad – We never tire of this one!
Grilled Burgers on Lettuce Buns – We stopped at Five Guys on the way back from the beach and had their cheeseburger in a lettuce wrap. So good! I’m trying to recreate that at home.
Skinny BLT Avocado Wraps – New Recipe! I meant to sub in cucumber slices because hubby doesn’t care for avocado, but I forgot. Oops. These were delicious. And messy to eat!
Cheeseburger Salad Bowls – Tried and true!
Strawberry Chicken Salad – New Recipe! Don’t let the garlic in the dressing scare you away; you won’t get dragon breath. My avocado was a little green, and I think the dressing would have been creamier with a ripe avocado. Maybe you can catch your avocado during the fifteen minute window of time between unripe and rotten?!
Dilled Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes – New Recipe! My cousin made this delicious tuna salad and shared the recipe with me. Thanks, Ruby! I’ve made it
twice three times in the last week. I might be just a little obsessed.
Dilled Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes
adapted from The Supermarket Diet Cookbook
Prep: 25 minutes
Makes: 4 servings
2 cans (6 ounces each) solid white tuna in water, drained and flaked
5 T. mayonnaise – I like Sir Kensington‘s
2 medium cucumbers, unpeeled, cut into 1/4 inch pieces – or one English cucumber
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh dill, finely chopped
2 T. capers, drained and finely chopped
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 large, ripe tomatoes (12 ounces each)
1) In medium bowl combine tuna, mayonnaise, cucumbers, dill, capers, lemon juice, mustard and pepper.
2) Cut each tomato, from blossom end, into 6 attached wedges, being careful not to cut all the way through. Spoon one-fourth of tuna mixture into center of each tomato.
I’ve found that I’m not really hungry between meals on keto.
