    I’d cheer for joy for a kick-ass salad like this…lots of great flavour and texture without the overbearing dressing. Thanks for sharing this!

    I found a simple recipe for gluten free vegan cookies that everyone loves….like this salad, it’s not low fat but it’s got the protien, and the ingredients are pretty solid for such a tasty cookie:

    2 1/2 cups almond flour (aka ground almonds. don’t use bob mills brand).
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 cup grapeseed oil (or half applesauce)
    1/2 cup agave nectar
    1 tbsp vanilla
    +Your fave jam (thumbprint it), or chocolate/flavour chips, or nuts to add to it.

    mix wet ingredients, mix dry ingredients, then combine, and bake at 350 F for 8 to 10 mins. Let cool for 10 minutes before moving to a rack.
    it’s a wet mixture, and the cookies come out pretty fragile, so handle with care when moving them to a rack to cool.

    Looks deee licious. Here is a recipe for LOW carb – high protein – candy treats – no sugar – but east to make and delicious

    > soak 2 T chia seeds in 6-8 T of water
    > after 5 minutes add:
    > 1/3-1/2 almond butter
    > 1-3 scoops protein powder – enough powder to make it not so sticky (my favorite taste wise is VITOL egg protein – low carb- sweetened with stevia)
    > 1 T cacao or cocoa powder
    > NOTE: if protein powder not sweet add a bit of stevia
    > roll into balls – good if rolled in unsweetened coconut
    > Optional: add walnut pieces or dried fruit currants or
    > cranberries
