Gorton's Real Fabulous Review

Healthy Dinner Recipes

About once a year I have time to make a truly awesome meal—like from scratch, multiple courses, and all fancy and stuff.  When I received a few recipe cards from Gorton’s, I glanced at them and thought ugh, they look more involved than PB&J.  I set them aside for a while and went about my day.  Since it’s January and I’m all brave and determined with the New Year’s spirit, I grabbed one of the cards and decided to go for it.  Well, to my amazement, I created a beautiful fancy meal in 20 minutes.  20 minutes!

The Gorton’s original Grilled Fillet Pear Salad recipe can be found, along with many others on the Gorton’s website.  I made a few tweaks to mine and it was delicious and totally great for my diet plan!  This salad only has 274 calories the way I made it!

My recipe adjustments:

  • I only had whole allspice so I threw it in my food processor to grind it up—it was super flavorful that way!
  • Instead of 2 tablespoons of olive oil, I used 2 teaspoons in the dressing
  • I used organic baby spinach in place of lettuce
    • I covered the spinach and shook it so it was all coated evenly with the dressing
  • I used Reduced Sugar Craisins
  • I cannot stand bacon so I just left that out
  • Instead of goat cheese, I used crumbled Garlic & Herb Feta
  • Oh, and I recommend cooking your fillets in the oven, the microwave is okay in a pinch, but the oven is way better

The final result was a glorious flavor explosion!  And, with nutrition info like this, I am in shock that it was so delicious!
