Create a healthier salad
(HealthDay News) -- Salads can be a healthy meal, but not if you top your greens with unhealthy foods and drown them in fattening dressing.
Here are some ideas to make your salads healthier:
- Slice up a nutrient-rich avocado to add to your salad.
- Season your salad with fresh or dried herbs, such as thyme, parsley, rosemary, sage, oregano or chives.
- Choose an oil-based dressing.
- Add flavor with fresh fruit. More unusual choices may include pomegranate seeds, peaches, nectarines, cherries, grapes or watermelon.
