Father's Day Dinner (Or Great Summer Meal!)

I am SO bummed I forgot to take final pictures of the meal!! But it all turned out perfect. I loved the fresh taste of the chicken with the Bean Salsa and the dessert was a little out of my comfort zone, but SO worth it! My Hubby LOVED the dessert! So here we go:

Grilled Chicken with Italian Bean Salsa

So fresh tasting!
Perfect for a topping on a quick BBQ chicken dinner.
You can get the recipe HERE.

Israeli Potato Salad
I LOVED this!
Taste like a juiced up regular potato salad.
4 Medium Potatoes (boiled, peeled, and cubed)
1 Large Carrot, peeled, boiled, then cubed (I just steamed it)
2 Large eggs, boiled, cubed
1 small Onion, finely chopped
3-4 Tbl peas, canned or frozen (frozen is ALWAYS better)
3 Medium pickles, diced
S&P to taste
1/2-1 C Mayonnaise - Here's the catch. I used about 1/4 C of Kraft Low Fat Mayo with Olive Oil and about 1/2 C of Nayonnaise (you could also use Vegannaise -both found in health section of store. Its a better low fat version of mayo. If you don't mind a slight sour taste, use Greek yogurt for half the mayo. I LOVE this swap!)

Dessert: Sauteed Bananas with Sweet Cream

We didn't love the cream. We ended up eating the bananas with chopped almonds
(I pulsed the in the food processor with a pinch of sea salt) and some vanilla ice cream. (Or you could easily do frozen yogurt! - Which I just found a great kind at target!)
