Pea Salad & Fitness Friday

Welcome foodie friends and nice to meet you to newbies to ABpetite visiting today Eat Yourself Skinny! I hope that I can get you to be a regular here! I am honored to be Spotlighted today on her amazingly talented blog. Please stop by and check out the post if you get a chance. 

Well today's recipe I just had to get in before summer was over! It is a family favorite, particularly my husbands favorite the word salad means PEA salad to him.
 Also I am sharing with you an awesome ab workout that hardly takes anytime at all! It is the perfect ab workout to do right after your cardio or any work out for that matter. Lets start with the fun part first the FOOD!

Doesn't this just look like the perfect summer salad??

Even KJ (the worlds pickiest eater) ate this salad AND enjoyed it! That is his little hand in the photograph above.

Pea Salad


Servings: 12
Serving Size: 1/2 Cup Salad
Calories: 45
Fat: 3 g
Carbs: 2.6 g
Fiber: .12 g
Protein: 1.6 g
Points+: 1


Here Are Your Ingredients:

4 green onions - diced
1 head lettuce - chopped
3/4 cup mayo - light
1 cup frozen peas - unthawed
1 tomato - large
4 sliced cooked turkey bacon
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese - part skim
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon pepper

Dice up all ingredients. Cook bacon. Combine in small mixing bowl mayo salt and pepper, stir. Add all ingredients in large decorative bowl and stir completely. Let sit for 1 hour before serving. 

Side note: This recipe is best served all at once or it tends to get soggy by the next day. (However the hubby loves it soggy). If you will not be making and eating the whole salad I suggest not adding in dressing until you are.

Bon ABpetit!

Now for the ab workout!
