Low-Point Vegetable Salad


A refreshing salad with no lettuce? That's just what this is. Full of healthy vegetables, and yet the kids still like it. :) This has become one of our family's favorites and if you're familiar with my blogs, you'll like the fact that this enjoyable salad has very few points and lasts for at least a week in the refrigerator.


Low-Point Vegetable Salad
Ingredients:
1, 15 oz. can French Style Green Beans, drained
1, 15 oz. can Peas, drained
1, 15 oz. can Whole White Corn, drained
1 cup celery (chopped)
1 small jar of pimentos
2/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Splenda (sugar substitute)
Mix all vegetables together. Heat vinegar, oil, and Splenda over medium heat until dissolved. Pour over vegetable mixture. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Serving size = 1/2 cup
Total points per serving = 1.3
*Tip - By cutting the vinegar down to 1/3 cup, the vegetable oil down to 1/8 cup, and the Splenda down to 1/2 cup, this changes the total points to be only .8 points per 1/2 cup serving.
