How I Southwestern my Salad!

Ok so I cheat and use a package,however, I do make it healthier by adding more lean protein, and take out 1/2 the sodium and most of the fat content.  I also add a couple handfuls of baby spinach and a tomato.  (Avocado would be a great addition too)

The ingredients I don't use: sour cream, 1/2 the dressing and cheese (today I did add about a tsp, because it was left over in the fridge from the omlette I made yesterday)

The ingredients I add: Greek yogourt (lots of lean protein) and pressed cottage cheese (it crumbles like feta, has 11 gr of protein per 55g serving - no salt added, 0.5% Fat content)

I know it's not as pretty as the first picture, but I wanted to show you that even though I only use half the package of dressing, the salad is fully covered because of the greek yogourt.  And it tastes DELICIOUS!!!

  1. I miss that cottage cheese! We don't get it out here, and if you do find it, it is like $8 a pack.
