Get your salad right!

Sorry to break the bubble, but “salad” doesn’t always mean “healthy.” Often overloaded with calorie-packed dressings, fried toppings, and delicious (!!) cheesy toppings, a dish that should ideally scream “green and healthy!” ends up screaming “fatty and heavy”!!

But, with a few modifications, any salad can make a healthy meal. First, you have to start with the four key ingredients to make any bowl of greens delicious and nutritious: greens, protein, veggies or fruit, and dressing.

Then, there are the bonus points: grains, crunch, and extras (say cheese!). Proportions and combinations are up to you!

Use the graphic below to get started (and for some too-good healthier dressing recipes).
