Nearly 107 million Americans are believed to have high cholesterola€”a condition that can be linked to an increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Nicoise salad (French pronunciation: [ni?swaz]), is a mixed salad consisting of various vegetables topped with tuna and anchovies. The original version of the salad always included raw red peppers, shallots, and artichoke hearts, never potatoes. Rumours suggest the famous choreographer Balanchine may have influenced the creation of this dish during his tenure in Monte Carlo.
MY light and tasty version of a classic Salad Nicoise - this salad omits the anchovies and potatoes, which add to the calorie count in this rustic French salad.

Scatter the oregano leaves over and then drizzle the salad cream style dressing over the whole salad. Thanks Julie, will post tomorrow, it is a GREAT recipe and packed with LUSH ingredients to give it lots of flavour! Looks great, tasty and simple – any suggestions as to what would make a good substitution for the tomato, as eating them raw gives me tummy ache ?? haha, thanks! NO problem there Gemma, just add cucumber instead, or maybe a couple of tinned artichoke hearts.

Although genetics strongly influence cholesterol levels, a few minor dietary changes can have a positive impact. It seems to have passed by in a flash, once the warm weather arrived that is – prior to the sunny days we have been enjoying, summer was REALLY dragging!
The French, especially in the Nice area, will clearly state no cooked vegetables are to be used. The total calorie count for this large salad, made my way, is only 203 calories, or 200 calories sans oregano! I am planning on sharing lots more low calorie recipes over the nest few weeks, so keep tuned! In my calorie counter site I use, it says that 300 ml of fully skimmed milk is 102 calories, but you’ve got it down as 52. Try cutting back on foods that are high in saturated and hydrogenated fats (trans fats) and eat plenty of foods high in soluble fiber, such as beans, oats and barley, as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables. Ripe tomato wedges, wedges of hard-boiled eggs, are topped with canned tuna (tinned in oil), and Nicoise Cailletier olives.

My Roast Tomato & Garlic Soup Recipe (70 Calories) has been and absolute BOON to my diet, and we have also enjoyed it on NON fasting days with baguette and home-made bread.

This salad is EXCELLENT for anyone following the 5:2 diet for fast days, as well as those on Weight Watchers.
THANKS for pointing it out – I am STILL on track just wrote down wrong Imperial to Metric conversion! The soup has been all the more enjoyable as it is the season for tomatoes, and many a kilo of home-grown tomatoes have found themselves in my weekly batch of this tasty soup! Another recipe that has been enjoyed several times is my Halloumi & Tomato Salad Platter, and with this in mind, I set out to develop a NEW salad recipe to share with you this week, and I am delighted to offer you my Salad Nicoise recipe, which is posted at the end of the meal plan, and it is an amazing 2013 calories only!
With lots and lots of delicious ingredients, whilst retaining the core classics of a  Salad Nicoise, with the addition of green beans, olives, eggs and tuna fish.
It’s time to share my meal plan for the week ahead now, and I hope that you find some recipe inspiration, whether you are dieting or not! With thanks as always to At Home with Mrs M, who is kind enough to host the Meal Planning Monday event, and see you later today with a SECRET RECIPE!
