Appetizers

A Warm Leek, Smoked Trout and Potato Salad
  • Time: 20 minutes

A Warm Leek, Smoked Trout and Potato Salad

This is one of my most favorite salads for festive holiday eating. Remember to choose small to medium leeks that have the most tender texture and ones that have dark green leaves but beautifully white necks. Equally important is to use half fat crème fraiche for the dressing. The portion size for this salad isn’t huge, it’s more appetizer size rather than main-meal, so if you are catering for man-sized appetites then double the quantities.
Chicken Salad with Mango and Lime Dressing

Chicken Salad with Mango and Lime Dressing

This low-fat but highly nutritious salad is ideal for picnics, deck-dining or alfresco entertaining. It is good served with crusty bread if you can tolerate it!
Greek Style Radish and Mint Dip

Greek Style Radish and Mint Dip

This amazingly simple to prepare dip has a multitude of uses. Serve, as intended, as a dip for vegetable crudités or breadsticks or as cooling addition to a spicy meal. I also like to serve it with barbecued lamb, chicken and fish and to spoon over grilled or baked summer vegetables like courgettes/zucchini, aubergines/eggplant, tomatoes and artichokes. Any type of radish will work well (I like to use breakfast radishes) but the yogurt must be Greek!
Griddled Turkey with Salsa
  • Time: 30 to 40 minutes

Griddled Turkey with Salsa

This is a most flavorsome low-fat, high-protein dish, and even though the quantities below are for a generous 1 serving (or ¾-1 serving for a WLS patient), it can be easily doubled, tripled or more for a larger gathering.
Moroccan Beetroot and Herb Salad with Yogurt Dressing

Moroccan Beetroot and Herb Salad with Yogurt Dressing

This salad would make a wonderful starter to a Moroccan style meal or a good accompaniment to the main dish for one. Use cooked beetroot/beets that are dipped in vinegar, not pickled ones, for the best authentic taste.
