What is your favorite healthy salad and dessert?

Right now my favorite salad is grilled chicken, mixed spring greens, mandarine oranges, and cilantro. My favorite "dessert" at the moment is frozen chunks of watermelon. I am going to try a watermelon mint salad soon too. Just want to get some good ideas, we are going to be back home in TX for the months of July and August and I know it will be HOT so I'm looking for some yummy, healthy (low fat) salads and desserts to keep us cool and healthy :-)

  • My favorite salad is tomato & cucumber slices with red onion. I make a dressing from ketsup, vinegar & a little sugar. It is so good on a hot day! For desert I love to make homemade sorbet. I use fruit and splenda. Wonderful!

  • Salad: A white and black bean salad. Equal amounts of cooked white and black beans, generous amounts of diced fresh tomato, diced celery, some diced onion, dressing made of olive oil, white vinegar, parsley, bit of salt & pepper. Top each serving with a handful of peanuts or sunflower seeds (shelled, of course).

    Dessert: homemade frozen fruit sorbets or homemade peach ice cream!

  • My favorite salad is strawberry spinach salad with finely sliced onion, candied walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette.

    For dessert, I'd love to have some ambrosia right now! Fresh pineapple, mandarin oranges, coconut, maraschino cherries and marshmallows. The dressing is made with cream, sour cream and sugar.
