I like simple recipes - this is one of them.
Take two green onions and two medium-sized tomatoes and wash them with plenty of water.
Cut tomatoes in half and using a sharp knife, slice tomatoes into a suitable pot. Clean green onions and chop them into smaller pieces.
Put chopped onions into pot with tomatoes, add some salt, just a little bit of pepper, some vinegar.
Adding oil: If you add a single tablespoon of oil (ordinary vegetable oil, olive oil, etc), you will add around 15g of oil - that is around 135 kcal. But, without oil, any salad has a 'dry' taste. Feel free to add half of tablespoon of oil and mix everything.
Salad is done. If that was complicated, then ... :o)
Nutritional values of tomato with green onions salad are:
|Calories:||12 kcal||76 kcal||68 kcal||-|
That is around 155 kcal - mostly from complex carbs (tomatoes) and oil. Fiber content is good - 5g. I didn't add any kind of salad dressing - vinegar in combination with some pepper and green onions is more than enough for a strong, but tasty aroma.
Note on green onions: some people use only the 'white' part for salads, while they throw away the 'green' part - don't do this. The green part is much richer in various vitamins and other, very beneficial, micronutrients.
I use this salad as a side dish with grilled meat - chicken breast, turkey breast, veal schnitzels, etc.
Nutritional values of tomato with green onions salad with grilled chicken breast are:
|Calories:||220 kcal||76 kcal||~90 kcal||-|
That is around 380 kcal, mostly from protein and some from carbs and fats. A meal like this is very fulfilling and can keep you satiated for a long period of time.
