  • Type AB (8 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (9 beneficials)
  • Type O (3 beneficials)

  • Entree

  • Assorted greens (lettuce, dandelion, parsley, romaine)
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 1 can tuna (or 1/2 can)
  • sliced tomato
  • small amount of blanched green beens or haricot vert
  • 1 Tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
  • anchovies (only if you like them)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley
  • firm tofu (optional replacement for potato)
  • (dressing, and this is a typical Nicoise dressing)
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • sea salt to taste

How to make it:
  1. You can toss all the salad Ingredients if you like, or lay them out neatly on the plate.
  2. Take the olive oil and whisk it with the lemon juice, crushed (through a garlic press) garlic and salt to taste.
  3. Taste the dressing, you may like more lemon, or less etc.
  4. You can also add shallots to the dressing, if you desire.
  5. Either drizzle the dressing over the salad if you lay it out, or toss with the rest of the Ingredients if you decide to have it that way.
  6. Crumble the feta over the top and sprinkle the extra parsley.
  7. If you really miss the potato, you can add chunks of firm tofu to the salad.
  8. This is a great Type O recipe.
  9. Bon appetit.
  10. P.S. You won't miss the olives or the potato.
