So of course I'm dieting.
But I am having a dinner for my inlaws tomorrow night and I would like to make something scrumptious but still really healthy.
Here is what I have so far:
Mâche salad with a light citrus vinaigrette, pomegranate seeds and orange (normally I would also add a wedge of chèvre, but not this time)
Soup (I need some help here)...I want something light, preferably a blended veggie soup....maybe green in colour? Any ideas? Does spinach work well in a blended soup?
Main Course (again, help needed)....past low-fat staples have been chicken and pear in a balsamic reduction, and I'm contemplating that....I'd like to make either chicken or salmon (or even shrimp).
Dessert - is there some sort of really light fruit tart I could make? Maybe something with a creamy custard and sliced fruit on top? Other ideas?
As far as skill in the kitchen, I'd say I'm definitely decent, but my audience in this case will not really be appreciative of anything other than continental style cuisine (i.e., they won't go for moroccan, indian, etc.).
Thank you for the help!
