  1. It looks delicious but lots of calories for just a side dish. Is there a way to make it less calories but still delicious?

    1. Beth, This dish can actually be eaten as a complete dinner. It has protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats (from olive oil). I eat this alone and it’s very filling.

    1. Patti, Everything in this salad is healthy and could actually be called a Superfood Salad. It's always important to look at where calories are coming from. This salad is packed with healthy antioxidants. As always, portion control is important. Over the last 6 years, I have personally never counted a calorie, carb or fat gram. I simply eat clean and use portion control. I lost 30 pounds almost 6 years ago and have kept it off. I know what goes in my body, and it's all good. 🙂
