LA Wrap Up.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...

RAVE! Dardara Lentil Salad.

 Dardara (Lentil Salad)

"Exclusively sold by Sabra foods and a "specialty of the house" at our Sabra Restaurant in Newton (MA)."

I found this at a local shop in MA. (Sorry!  I don't know about buying this elsewhere, I am looking now!)
  If you want to find it in your store?  Click here.

Made with caramelized onion, Dardara makes a perfect garnish on any salad or as a side dish for any meal."



Absolutely simple, delish and FILLING, you can pack in two ounces of this stuff for 40 calories, or the whole eight ounce container for 160 calories.  I cannot possibly.  I want to.  I can't.  Burp.  The package says it's better heated up.  I'm eating it cold.  ;)  Now, if you're a post-op WLS'er, this could very well be something that is a bit overwhelming to your altered belly.  WAIT until you're allowed to eat whole grains, would ya?  I am nearly five years out, I can eat nearly everything.

What's in it? 

Lentils, Brown Rice, Caramelized Onions, Sea Salt, EEOO and Water.  Simple.  Good.

This company makes a host of other products I must try, starting with the grape leaves.

So, yeah, that's a rave. 

  • Product - Dardara Lentil Salad
  • Purchased - Local grocery store refrigerated section
  • Price - I don't remember.  I will take a stab at $2.99?
  • Pros - 40 calorie serving, eating clean, very healthy, can't go wrong here.
  • Cons - If you can't handle rice, sorry, it could bother your pouch (for the WLS crowd)
  • Rating - Pouchworthy if you can handle grains.
