’Tis the season to indulge. But maybe not too much with all the holiday parties approaching. You can satisfy your lunch craving and stay on the good side of the calorie counter with this light but tasty combo.
Milky queso fresco (or another fresh cheese such as fromage blanc, bocconcini or chèvre)
Thin strips of crunchy red onion
Finely chopped rings of mellow green onion
Shaved slices of lightly salted cucumber
An “everything” bagel (or multigrain for the very virtuous)
Spread your bagel with a thin smear of mayo for extra zip, then add your toppings.
