Fresh Garden Salad In a Bowl

A couple of notes about this dish as you can see it does contain corn, which is typically off limits after weight loss surgery. I’ll be honest because it’s not about what Corn is, it’s because of what we do to Corn before we eat it. No one gained weight by eating plainly cooked Corn with nothing on top. It’s when we start popping it in oil, drenching it with butter and putting salt and cheese on top. Or buttering a boiled cob and then adding salt. So this is a perfect way to get a little Corn flavor without the temptation to add a bunch of high-fat toppings.

The first step to this salad is to make the Buttermilk Vinaigrette and let the gorgeous fresh herbs marry together with the buttermilk and create a truly rich tasting dressing that’s still well within Bariatric limits.
