Fruits and Veggies More Matters states, "A salad can be a nutrition powerhouse. To boost the nutrition of your salad, think about adding color and texture. Start with the greens and instead of using only iceberg lettuce, try missing in darker greens like spinach, kale or red leaf lettuce. Add your favorite veggies for flavor and crunch - cucumber, tomato, shredded carrot, radish, red onion and baby peas are a few options. Fruits add a sweetness to your salad. Try citrus fruit like Mandarin oranges or grapefruit or go with sliced strawberries or fresh raspberries as a topping. Don't forget the protein. Beans like garbanzo, black or pinto beans add protein, fiber and flavor to any salad. Low fat cheese or a lean meat like fish or chicken breast is also a great addition. Nuts and seeds also make a terrific topping, adding crunch and flavor."
