Salads may seem like they are always a good choice for healthy eating, but unfortunately far too often we prepare a nutritious salad and then smother it with unhealthy, sugar-laden dressings. There are better choices for your salads that will enhance their flavor, support whatever dietary needs you have, and boost the bioactive ingredients you are eating.
