A healthy salad is composed of fruits, vegetables, some protein, a bit of fat and tiny dose of sugar. Even if you are eating a salad, the meal must still be complete and that means carbs, protein and everything else. What makes the salad unhealthy is the salad dressing.
One tablespoon of dressing is about 70 calories but the sugar content of that is too much. If you want a healthy treat, add homemade balsamic vinegar to your leafy greens and colorful fruits. Say goodbye to ranch dressing.
