Strawberry Pineapple Salad

Low Fat Strawberry Pinapple Salad ( THM E))

I love this Strawberry Pineapple Salad.

It was a happy accident in my kitchen this afternoon. I was looking for an energizing lunch since this is the time of day that I seem to need an energy boost.

I know it’s January and it’s cold outside, trust me things didn’t go so great earlier today when the access door to my gas tank was frozen shut and I needed to get gas. Our temps here in Northern IL are in the single digits so why in the world would I be craving pineapple or strawberries?? I’m not really sure but I was.

I had a partial can of crushed pineapple left after making the pineapple upside down cake from page 290-291 of my Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, and some strawberries that needed to be used.

I love this Pear Waldorf Salad and thought hmmm I could change that up…

So I did and boy was it YUMMY!!

 

I’m huge fan of these types of salads because you can mix them up once and split them into meal or snack size portions (I’d eat about 1/2 of this as a snack). they are light and filling at the same time so work great when you aren’t really sure what you want to eat or in the summer they are great for helping cool you off without it being heavy.

So I used the same serving size for the pineapple as the authors did in their upside down cake, just to make sure I wasn’t pressing my luck with the pineapple, added about 6 cut up strawberries … it only took a few minutes to cut up the strawberries and the celery… mix it together and woot!! A Healthy lunch that is both filling and fast.

You might be able to use frozen strawberries in this but I would thaw them first. (I haven’t tried it that way, YET. Let me know if you do)

    i am still learning THM and loving your site. I do have a question. I was under the impression that E meals had to have 5g or less of Fat. I see that several of the delicious looking meals have 7g of fat. Can I still count this as an E?

      You can, When I first started THM there were no “number” guidelines… just S foods and E foods …so I still think of them that way. Once in a while to go over 1-2 grams will be okay, you just don’t want to do it at every meal 🙂
