We’re in the height of picnic season here, friends.  What’s your favorite picnic food?  One of mine is pasta salad.  I love the zesty Italian flavors and fresh veggies paired with the meat and cheese.  I’ve been trying to lower my carb intake and increase how much protein and veggies I eat the past year.  It was my goal this summer to create an easy, healthy salad that was like my favorite pasta salad without the sugar and carbs.  I’ve found it and am happy to share it with you today!

I’m also happy to share with you one of the most important parts of this salad, and that is the smoked mozzarella.  Have you tried the Weight Watchers® Smoked Mozzarella string cheese? I’m a new fan of these quick and easy snacks, although they have been the Winner of the ChefsBest® Best Taste Award in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013. Seriously, how have I been missing out on these?  They’ve got a soft, smooth smoky flavor and are only 50 calories (that’s just 1 PointsPlus®) per stick.  I know I need a quick protein snack most afternoons to carry me over until dinner.  These Weight Watchers® string cheeses are a great choice since they have 50% less fat than regular string cheese and are full of calcium.

In this Smoked Mozzarella Tomato Salad, we kept things easy by using Weight Watchers® string cheese chopped into bite-size pieces.  The smokiness of the cheese adds such a depth of flavor to the salad.  And that smoked flavor paired with some turkey pepperoni? Unbeatable.

I impressed my hubby with this salad, too.  I’m always a little hesitant to introduce healthy recipes to him, but he had several helpings of this one and finished the rest off for lunch the next day. That makes this one a winner!
