Salad is any of a wide variety of dishes including green salads; vegetable salads; salads of pasta, legumes, or grains; mixed salads incorporating meat, poultry, or seafood; and fruit salads. They include a mixture of cold or hot foods, often including vegetables and/or fruits. One health benefit of consuming salad is an increase in fiber intake. Salads provide the body with a lot of fiber which in turn means lower cholesterol and less constipation. Furthermore, when you eat these green wonders, you feel fuller, eat less and lose weight.
