Healthy Salads For Weight Loss

Guest Author - Patricia Mitchell

To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomatist- the problem is entirely the same in both cases. To know exactly how much oil one must put with one's vinegar. ~Oscar Wilde

Summer is the perfect time for delicious salads. Many people automatically assume salads are healthy. However, adding extra cheese, high calorie dressing, and croutons can turn that healthy salad into a high calorie, high fat dish that can stall your weight loss efforts. Check out the healthy salads below that will satisfy your appetite and help you stay on your diet. Try experimenting by adding different veggies and your own homemade dressings. These salads are great for light lunches or an evening meal and a delicious way to add fruits and vegetables to your meals.
