Salads are supposed to be healthy but what good is a salad if it does not contain food items that are antioxidant rich? This salad, unfortunately, does not contain items that may provide essential nutrients. If you are planning to consider this salad for your own diet then consider adding items such as artichokes, russet potatoes, apples, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, plums, prunes, pecans, small red beans, red kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, coffee, red wine, tea and more ...

We wonder if this is indeed a salad because even adding spinach or tomatoes would have made this salad pass the antioxidant test. Bottom line, this is not a healthy salad.

It’s recommended to eat a diet that is high in fiber.

Fiber-rich diet has many benefits and one of the best ways to have a fiber-rich meal is to have a salad that has items such as beans and artichoke. Fiber-rich salads can not only help you with your bowel movements but also help you lose weight properly and keep your blood and sugar levels in check.

This salad contains cucumbers, romaine lettuce, mushrooms, olives, banana peppers which would give this salad a check mark on the fiber front but it’s all about how many grams of fiber you are consuming daily. If you are considering this salad for your diet or are going to create your own salad then keep the following in mind - Men should consume 40g of fiber daily and women should aim for 25g of fiber, at least.
