Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Chunky Tomato-Fruit Gazpacho

Makes 9 1-cup servings @ 1 PointsPlus™ per serving

Hey everyone!!! One of the ladies (thanx Linda) from my Tuesday meeting brought this recipe in. Said she made it and even 'teens' liked it!!! What's not to like? It's only ONE PointsPlus™ per serving. And look how colorful and inviting it is!!! I'm thinking this would be a real treat to a holiday BBQ.

  • 2 cups finely diced cantaloupe
  • 2 cups finely diced honeydew melon
  • 2 cups finely diced tomatoes
  • 1 mango, finely diced
  • 2 salad cucumbers, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and finely chopped
