South Beach Diet Lunch Recipes

Lunch recipes compatible with the South Beach Diet, as well as the Zone Diet, Sugar Busters, and other reduced-carbohydrate diets which also limit saturated fat. Recipes include soups, salads, etc.

Rainbow Soup
This is a vegetable soup with an array of colorful veggies in it, packed with nutrition. You can add chicken or turkey for a full meal.

Strawberry Chicken Salad
This is a quintessential summer dinner salad -- lovely, light, and different. Dress with strawberry vinaigrette dressing and you have a real treat on a hot summer night.

Tuna Walnut Salad
Walnuts and a touch of cinnamon dress up your everyday tuna salad!

Ranch Style Cole Slaw
Creamy, ranch-style cole slaw, great with barbeque.

Salmon Salad - An Alternative to Tuna
Salmon has many nutritional advantages over tuna and it's tastier, in my opinion. Try this alternative to tuna salad.

Cauliflower "Potato" Salad
I made quite a few versions before coming up with a cauliflower salad that really is a lot like potato salad, but low carb.

Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Wrap
How to have the wonderful flavors of a BLT (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) sandwich without the bread.

Creamy Spicy Pumpkin Soup
This pumpkin soup is creamy and comforting, but also has enough spice to be interesting. For South Beach, swap milk for the cream.

Caprese Pasta Salad - Basil and Tomato Salad
This pasta salad has all the elements of the Italian caprese salad. I use shirataki noodles to make it low carb.

Strawberry Vinaigrette
This dressing is good on any green salad for something different. I especially like it with Strawberry Chicken Salad.

Sweet and Sour Lime Dressing
Tangy salad dressing whipped up in a flash!

Cranberry Vinaigrette
A yummy, healthy salad dressing made with fresh or frozen cranberries.
