Let’s face it, we know that salads are not only colorfully beautiful, but they also are great for our health.

What is in a healthy salad

Salads can be filled with disease-fighting phytonutrients, antioxidants and loads of fiber. The fact is, it’s not just all about leafy greens and vegetables either.


Some of my favorite things to put in a salad are greens like spinach, romaine, kale, and arugula.

Other great veggie options include tomatoes, shredded carrots, diced celery, cucumber slices, broccoli florets, cauliflower, and so much more!

Grains, beans, & fruit

A great salad can be piled high with grains like brown rice, millet, or bulgur. Other great additions are protein-packed beans and energizing and refreshing fruit.

Some of the fruits that I love to add to my salad are canteloupe, honeydew melon, strawberries, mango, and mandrin orange slices.

Choosing the right salad dressing

The downfall of many seeking these healthy benefits is what’s on top of their salad.

Unfortunately, most salad dressings are loaded with lots of sugar and artery-clogging saturated fat.

Luckily, oil-free and dairy-free salad dressing options can provide a power-punch of flavor for these culinary masterpieces without all the processed artery-clogging junk.

The deliciously easy dressings listed below also happen to be gluten-free. They will keep your salad and waistline healthy and happy!
