How to Make a Healthy Salad

 Start with a bed of leafy greens. They're low in calories and a good source of fiber. There are different varieties of lettuce, such as iceberg, leaf, spinach, escarole, romaine, or butter.

Add raw dark green and brightly colored vegetables that are rich in flavonoids. Fresh green beans snap peas, carrots, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, artichokes, avocados, tomatoes, and cucumbers are all healthy salad toppings.

Add fruits or berries. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, pomegranate, apple slices and raisins can add vitamins and antioxidants to your salad.

Add a little protein. A chopped or sliced hard-boiled egg is an excellent source of protein, or you can add a serving of lean beef, cooked shrimp, tuna, chicken breast, or strips of cheese.

Sprinkle a few nuts on top. Walnuts, pecans, almonds, or cashews add a nice crunch. Nuts add protein and heart-healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.

Finish with bit of oil and vinegar or top your salad with freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice.
