Dear Mary, I eat out a lot and have figured out that I like salads. Should I eat dressing on the salad, tossed in the salad, or on the side?
I like to eat my salads tossed in dressing rather than asking for it on the side. I use straight vinegar, lemon, or lime-juice in place of thick, mayonnaisey, and high caloried dressings.
Also if you want to make your salad even healthier here are some great alternatives to try out.
- Instead of having a salad with iceberg lettuce, choose a heartier green like spinach. It’s a bit more expensive but you are getting more bang for your buck, darker greens are packed with more vitamins and minerals.
- Switch out any fried meats that may be in your salad with baked or better yet grilled meats.
- Also for a nice crunch to your salad, omit the fatty bacon with sliced almonds. You'll get the same amount of protein with none of the guilt!
