Stone Fruit Salad with Cooking Light

stone fruit salad

Throughout my pregnancy salads were very rare on my menu!  Why?  I’m not sure!  When I was pregnant with my son I ate salads frequently because they were both a great way to get protein plus perfect for my gestational diabetes.  This time around while I was pregnant with my daughter, I had serious morning sickness.

I started the pregnancy taking both Zofran and Phenergan, luckily I was able to stop taking the Zofran but I ended up taking Phenergan right up until I gave birth!  Now…what does this have to do with salad?  I really did not have an appetite for salad.  I forced it down a few times but aside from that I just did not want any salad!

Now, after the baby I have been craving delicious, protein packed salads!  I have several that are coming up on the blog in the next month as I am trying different salads for lunch during the week.  I love how easy salads are to whip up for lunch with just about anything I find in the fridge.  They are perfect as I try to loose weight plus a good way to get in some additional protein.

I adapted this salad from Cooking Light.  The adaption included taking out the rice; however, I just had rice a few too many times that week and was not up for it again so that would likely make a good addition to the salad.  I also used the fruit that I had on hand.

My favorite part of this salad?  The dressing, it was light and bursting with flavor!

I served this salad along side half a sandwich making it a great lunch or dinner.
