Carol Alt: Spring Salads
Spring is a great time to make the adjustment from comfort food to fresh salads and vegetables. 

Salads can be much more than iceberg lettuce and ranch dressing or the "bonus" you get at a restaurant. 

However, whether you're making your own salads at home or hitting up a salad bar, you still have to pay attention to how you construct your leafy masterpiece.

What are some salad mistakes you can make?

  • Adding cooked food with hidden calories and that were likely cooked in rancid oil.
  • Vegetables that haven't been washed correctly.
  • Salad dressings that have artificial ingredients.

Listen in as Carol Alt joins host Lisa Davis to share her favorite salad ingredients, as well as some tricks and tips for creating delicious, healthy salads... even for breakfast.
