One of my heroes, FlyLady.net, has a saying, “Don’t drink your fruit.”
A local doctor agreed with her noting the high amount of fructose in most forms of juice. I took that advice to heart and I buy only fresh fruit, not keeping fruit juice on hand. My healthy habit posed a problem when I wanted to make one of my favorite summer salads that called for 3 tablespoons of frozen orange juice concentrate. I substituted the juice of one orange and the dressing was great!
8 ounces spinach, torn into bite-size pieces
4 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
1 red apple, sliced
1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
3 T. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed or the juice of one orange
1. Tear spinach into bite-size pieces.
4. Mix together mayonnaise and juice.
If you were observant, you may have noted I used more than four slices of bacon. It was an accident. I cook the bacon a package at a time in the microwave and freeze what I do not use. I ended up using it all by mistake.
