  1. This looks delicious. I especially like that you have replaced some of the ingredients with low fat alternatives.

    This looks a real treat with a nice salad. I could almost convince myself it’s healthy!

    1. Thank you. Yes, it is delicious. For the health conscience, it’s always nice to add or make low fat alternatives where you can.

      Having difficulties with certain foods, I have no choice.
