A member of our BariatricEating Support Group on Facebook, Jen Towler, asked if we could create a bariatric friendly version of an Amish broccoli carrot salad she loved that is traditionally made with a sweet tangy mayo sour cream dressing. Admin Alison Garcia took on the task and came up with a lighter yet delicious salad that she was excited to feature in one of her ‘BE Easy’ Small Plate Meals. The dish is crisp, bright, sweet and snappy. It works with deli roast beef and cheddar. Mmmmmm.

    For a person who isn’t really a “salad” person….I LOVE this salad. the apples and walnuts add a super crunch and the dressing is awesome. Highly recommend this low fat version! I think added a little bit of bacon or cheese or both next time!
