Low Carbohydrate Recipe
Oriental Salad with fish sauce, which is the salty liquid condiment used extensively in Southeast Asian cooking. Well stocked grocery stores and Oriental supermarkets carry it, but you can use salt in its place.

2 green onions, diced
16 sprigs cilantro, leaves only
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced English cucumber
1 head Romaine lettuce, inner leaves only
1 head butter lettuce, inner leaves only
1 bunch watercress, large stems removed
2 hard cooked eggs, whites and yolks separated
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon Splenda
5 tablespoons lemon Juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
Combine the celery, green onion, cilantro, mint, tomato, cucumber, lettuce and watercress.
Thinly slice the eggs and add to the mixture.
