Say Yes to Salads
• Supersize your salad. Just think of the possibilities of an entrée-sized salad. One cup of leafy greens is a serving; pile on healthy toppings, and every 1/2 cup of chopped fruits and vegetables is another serving. You can easily get half your daily fruits and vegetables packed into one glorious salad.
• Don’t cheat yourself on the dressing. Be moderate, but be tasteful. A lot of the fat-free and low-fat dressings out there are full of sugar and sodium and are completely deprived on flavor. A few splashes of a good, heart-healthy canola- or olive-oil based dressings can do wonders to that bed of greens. Try making your own with our Easy Herb Vinaigrette (shown). Make a batch to keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
