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!!!

Tomato Cucumber Salad

I love this time of the year.....with the exception of the humidity! There are so many fresh fruits and vegetables available now. They're so pretty and colorful......and just begging to come home with you.  I bought the cucumbers and tomatoes with the intention of using them in an ordinary garden salad......until I opened the cabinet and saw the balsamic rice vinegar. This is what I came up with......and it's so refreshing!

TOMATO CUCUMBER SALAD
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™


3 medium or 4 small cucumbers, peeled & sliced @1/4” thick
1/2 of a red onion, sliced & separated
20 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup balsamic rice vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup water
salt & pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together. Cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.
 
 



 


That's it!

MY SPIN: I used the Nakano brand balsamic ride vinegar. I love it! You can use regular vinegar if you want to, but try the Nakano!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life!
