Here is a personal creation, modified from my good friend Linda’s kitchen! Linda uses broccoli instead of asparagus – the choice is yours. Goes great with…well…just about anything! It’s a perfect side salad for the first BBQs of the season. And being composed of nothing more than FreeVeg, it is barely worth counting… Read on!

6 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
6 cups asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 bunch of green onions, sliced
2 tsp lemon juice (+ extra to taste)
dried chili flakes
2-3 packets of Splenda (1g)

Mix it up and enjoy! Add more lemon juice, pepper, and/or dried chili flakes to taste.

Nutritional Info: (per 2 cup serving; recipe as written makes 6 servings)
Only 55 calories per serving! I’m serious. 🙂
Calorie content is unchanged whether you use asparagus or broccoli – mix it up!
(Aaah, the beauty of the FreeVeg….)
