Samuel L. Jackson
Celebrity Chef Nikki Shaw: Samuel L. Jackson is an incredible actor with box office hits like "Star Wars," "Pulp Fiction," and "Shaft" under his belt. I ran into him recently, and of course we talked about my favorite thing in the world: food. Guess what he told me he loves to eat every single day? He stays thin and trim by eating an assorted variety of salads.

Be very careful: "salads" can be deceiving! If you're choosing to eat salads to keep the pounds off, watch out for those delicious high-calorie dressings and fattening toppings. Rich, creamy dressings like honey mustard, chunky blue cheese, or BBQ ranch can taste wonderful on a bed of fresh green lettuce. Although they're scrumptious (and a permanent fixture on my refrigerator door), they may be defeating your purpose. Lower calorie dressings like vinaigrette, Italian, or good ole olive oil and balsamic vinegar are better choices.

"NIK TIP": Have a small healthy salad before dinner each night, like my Spinach Confetti Veggie Salad. The roughage is great for your digestive system. It creates a smooth path for the remainder of your meal to follow.

In this bitter economy, I'll show you how to make life sweet right at home.


1 6-ounce bag of fresh baby spinach leaves
½ cup tomatoes, diced
½ cup yellow bell pepper, diced
½ cup carrots, diced
½ cup mushrooms, diced
½ cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing

1. Place spinach, tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, carrots, and mushrooms in a large bowl.
2. Drizzle dressing on salad and lightly toss.
