And now for today's recipe...

Just because something sounds and looks healthy doesn't mean it has to taste dull and boring. This salad, for example, made a perfect, tasty lunch for me this week. My doc told me my cholesterol is 250 (YIKES!!!) and though no need for medication, which I was grateful for, I do need to start watching my fats and carb intake. I really didn't miss a thing by not adding in the oil to this salad and it was light and refreshing. 

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Hazelnuts and Fresh Lime Juice
2 c. Fresh Baby Spinach, rinsed and stems removed
4-5 Strawberries, rinsed and hulled
2 tbsp. Chopped Hazelnuts
1 Lime, juice only
1/4 tsp. Fresh Black Pepper

Tear spinach into bite-sized pieces and add to a bowl. Slice the strawberries and add to the spinach along with the nuts, lime juice and pepper. Toss all ingredients together. Serves 2.
