HEALTHY SALAD TIPS for a slimmer summer

  • Limit extras like croutons and bacon bits

  • Use a variety of greens like spinach, leaf lettuce, arugula, dandelion greens, kale, watercress and basil leaves - full of flavor and nutrition!

  • Don't pile on fried meat - use heart healthy tuna -- a quick, easy protein (much lower in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than many other protein choices) that works for lunch or dinner.

  • Keep your pantry stocked with salad-friendly canned veggies to add pizzazz (and extra nutrients!) to your salad

  • Try squeezing some fresh lemon and olive oil on your salad, or use salsa, instead of drenching your salad with dressing
