This article offers advice on making salads healthier. The traditional salad of iceberg lettuce with a slice of tomato and cucumber topped with creamy salad dressing provides only small amounts of vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals. Yet, scientific studies show fruits and vegetables also reduce risk of hypertension, stroke, osteoporosis and weight gain. Healthy salads can help meet the goal of four servings of fruits and five servings of vegetables daily in a 2,000-calorie diet.
