Here’s a new favorite at the Pritikin Longevity Center that bursts with flavor (without bursting your blood vessels). Many pickled foods have more sodium than most of us should have for the entire day. This salad, created by Pritikin’s award-winning chef Anthony Stewart, has zero added sodium. Like all the dishes at Pritikin, it is a celebration for both palate and heart. The perfect fit for foodies this fall.
Many pickled foods have more sodium than most of us should have for the entire day. These pickled carrots and onions have zero added sodium. And certainly, branch out! This recipe works well for any firm vegetable. For veggies with softer texture, like zucchini, go ahead and boil your vinegar, water, and pickling spice, but let it cool to room temperature before pouring over your soft veggies.
Be creative! Feel free to forge new fusions. Do you prefer balsamic over red wine vinegar? Go for it! Did you just pick up gorgeous strawberries from the market? Use them instead of oranges for this salad. Remember Pritikin Chef Anthony’s mantra: “If you like foods individually, chances are you will love them when they’re combined.” It’s all about discovering new taste treats!
Enjoy this rich, creamy recipe in a wrap, stuffed in salmon or chicken breast, as a spread on whole-grain bread or pizza dough, or simply as a dip for veggies. And that’s only the beginning! Let your imagination go!
At many restaurants, a serving of mashed potatoes has an artery stiffening 800-plus mg of sodium. That’s more than half the sodium most of us should have for the entire day. These Spinach Mashed Potatoes created by the chefs at the renowned Pritikin health resort have just 25 mg of sodium, but loads of savory, creamy flavor.
This recipe is always a hit in our cooking school at Pritikin. Enjoy it not only as a salad but as a dessert. For dessert, slip it into the freezer just before you sit down for your main course. By dessert time, it’s nicely chilled.
