Healthy Salad How-Tos

Punch up the color.

Toss your lettuce (spinach, romaine, and field greens are the most nutritious) with a rainbow of veggies, such as tomatoes, yellow bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers.

Pick a protein.

Tofu, beans, chicken, turkey, fish -- all of these are good sources to keep you satisfied. Stick with one and you won't go overboard.

Watch the add-ons.

A sprinkle of cheese or nuts is okay, but skip the calorie bombs, like bacon bits and croutons.

Dress for success.

Instead of mayo-based toppings, like ranch, opt for a vinaigrette made with olive or canola oil.
