Salad and Nutrients

Overview & Description | Functions and Sources

A salad is a collection of raw vegetables, with some sort of salad dressing mixed in. From a dietary standpoint, salads come in many forms. Not all salads are healthy or nutritious. One can create a healthy meal from a salad bar. But it is also easy to make unhealthy choices and select many items high in calories and fat.


An innocent trip through the salad bar can easily total up to 1,000 calories, especially if the salad is loaded with fat. Making wise choices can be a great way to get the disease-fighting properties of fiber, minerals, vitamins, phytochemicals, and healthy fats. It can also help with weight loss and weight maintenance.
