HealthDay News

(HealthDay News) -- Salads can be a healthy meal, but not if you top your greens with unhealthy foods and drown them in fattening dressing.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how 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.
