Tomorrow some of my 'blogger' friends and I are hosting a "Healthy" linky party! :-) Link up with recipes, workouts, success stories, and ideas for staying on track with your New Years resolutions:-) When you link up on Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box, your link is immediately seen on the other hostess' blogs too! :-) It is a wonderful way to discover new blogs and to share great recipes and other healthy ideas! :-) 
Here are the hostesses! :-)

I can't wait to see all of your ideas! :-) 

In the spirit of healthy eating, here is a wonderful Weight Watchers salad! 
{I didn't make the dressing but it sounds amazing!} 
Santa Fe Salad with Chili Lime Dressing
6 Tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
3 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
3 Tbsp water 
1 medium uncooked scallion(s), minced 
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp sugar 
1/2 tsp chili powder  
15 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained  
1 1/2 cup(s) cooked corn kernels, fresh or frozen  
2 cup(s) grape tomatoes   
1 medium sweet red pepper(s), cut into thin strips (about 1 1/2 cups) 
8 cup(s) romaine lettuce, cut into thick shreds (about 2 hearts) 
To make dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cilantro, water, scallion, lime juice, sugar and chili powder until smooth. Transfer to a jar or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate until ready to use. In a large bowl or food storage container, layer remaining ingredients in order listed; cover and refrigerate.To serve, spoon salad ingredients into a bowl. Shake dressing and then drizzle dressing over salad; toss well to coat. Yields about 2 cups of salad and 1 1/2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.

  1. How yummy. I have been eating so many salads and this would be great on my rotation.

  2. I love a salad with beans. A lot of people aren't into them, but I grew up with them so don't have any issues. A perfect recipe for New Year's commitments to health!

  3. I know what I am making for dinner tonight! xx

  4. This looks SO good...and it will help use up some of the contents of my fridge's vegetable drawer (and some lonely frozen corn). Discovered your blog thanks you a comment you left...I look forward to reading more!
