    Hey all

    I'm back on SW with avengence from tomorrow, however I do not get paid til Weds so have to eat what I have in cupboards til then.

    Normally for lunch - green days - I have salad with either pasta/rice/hard boiled eggs/couscous.

    I have no salad in (well a sad looking bit of celery that's all!) so was thinking of having cold pasta with a sauce/dressing of some sorts.

    Can anyone recommend an easy to do LF/low syn dressing that's suitable for a veggie on green days?

    I have lots of storecupcoard indgredients in.

    Thanks!

    Hi, It's not very exciting but I just use fat free vinegarette, loads of it with cold veggies in the pasta for a green day lunch. Also nice if you mash up some laughing cow as you eat.

    My sister makes a pasta salad with tinned kidney beans and/or chick peas (draied and rinsed) and tinned sweetcorn.

    Just cook the pasta and cool it down, then add the beans and corn and mix well.

    She doesn't add a dressing or a sauce to it - it is very nice just as it is.

    Good idea! I have beans and sweetcorn in cupboard so that's what I'll do :)

    I'm veggie ;) so tuna is no good! But thanks for replying.

    I've gone with pasta, sweetcorn, canellini beans, sad looking celery (perked up in a glass of water) and fat free dressing.

    Hi Flutterby

    Have you tried mixing pasta with cottage cheese (some flavoured ones are syn free) it moistens it and gives it more flavour and no mayo means no syns
