Accessorize Your Boring Salad

Bored by that bland bowl of greens? Shake it up with these tasty toppers.  Ways to accessorize your salads and still keep it healthy.

Dress for success.

Say good-bye to the days of “Oops, I drowned my salad in raspberry balsamic!” Spray dressings are, hands down, the best way to get a controlled amount of dressing onto your greens. It’s as easy as pressing a button (okay, pressing it about 10 times). Each spray has only one calorie!
Almond Accents
These lightly seasoned slivered almonds, found in the produce section of the grocery store, are the best. Because they’re sliced so thin, a little really goes a long way — one tablespoon of slivers only has around 50 calories and 4g fat.
Real crumbled bacon
Guess what? The precooked real bacon bits you can buy at the grocery store have only 25 calories per tablespoon.

Fiber One Cereal Original
Instead of greasy, crispy noodles, throw in some of this healthy cereal to add fiber, crunch, and deliciousness without the fat!
Most salsas have around 10 calories per tablespoon, so feel free to get a little crazy here. Scoop it on, mix it around, and chow down on your spicy salad.
Fast-food salad finds
Not all salads you can get at the drive-through are low-cal, so stick to these safe picks.

You’ve got to love the 30 grams of filling protein in this salad. If you want to cut out some fat, use just half the packet of almonds.
