by Jennifer Chandler
With the popularity of gourmet salads on the rise, from five-star restaurants to fast food chains, salads are becoming much more than boring diet food or the preview to a meal. Salads are a delectable, healthy and quick alternative as well as a meal's main event.
A recent study done by the UCLA School of Public Health and Louisiana State University Health Services Center found that eating just one salad a day may have more health benefits than originally thought. People who consume at least one salad a day have a higher level of nutrients responsible for a healthy immune system, and reducing the risk of heart disease and obesity. Eating a salad a day could quite possibly be the easiest way to improve your overall health and with all of the variety of fresh-packaged salad blends in local stores it has never been easier to make a deliciously simple salad for any meal.
