Lemony Beet Salad

Note: Two of my diet staples that I thought were pretty healthy but still cost an unacceptable amount of SmartPoints are Kind bars and Craisins. I need something sweet on my salads, so Craisins have been replaced with beets! Here is a recipe that makes them extra tasty. I used to use oil in the dressing, but tried it without and didn’t notice the difference.

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 package of precooked beets, diced
  • 1 small bunch (or half a large bunch) scallions, diced
  • 1 oz (30 g) fat free feta cheese
  • Half a lemon

Instructions

Toss the beets, scallions, and feta cheese in the lemon juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Weight Watchers SmartPoints breakdown: Zero points! If you use reduced fat feta, it’s a mere 1 point per serving. If you use full fat feta, it’s only 2 points per serving. Still pretty good, whatever feta you use!
