  • Thank you for this article. I enjoy going to restaurants that offer a salad bar. I skip the croutons, cheese and other unhealthy choices. I also when available I chose oil and vinegar versus thousand island or ranch. - 9/8/2015 1:40:07 PM
  • The chart is very helpful but I wish it included sodium content. - 8/11/2012 8:19:45 AM

  • This is really helpful. When I do clinicals in the hospital for school it's very easy to think you're being healthy with a salad... but you can go way over board with the higher fat items if you're not paying attention. - 1/26/2011 7:51:45 PM

    Doesn't this rather take the fun away from eating out, though? I can make a plain green salad at home, and do it more cheaply, too. I don't make the fancier ones, because my husband is watching his weight and it isn't worth making. potato salad or rice salad for one person. On the rare occasions we have a meal outside our own home I prefer to eat something I CAN'T easily make at home. - 1/26/2011 9:58:13 AM
  • Nothing is as gross than salad bars with all those awful mayonnaise-based offerings. Yuk. I hate mayonnaise. I hate sour cream. I hate all cheeses. I hate any potato salad that I did not make myself. At salad bars I like to make myself a chopped veggie salad and maybe top it with a slight slash of italian dressing or just some vinegar and oil, salt and pepper. I don't understand how people have trouble with this, those salads are just so GROSS. Just imagine all those mayo-based salads bubbling with botulism....I'll take a DRY salad any day!!!!. - 1/26/2011 9:47:59 AM
  • Of course if temptation is too much ask for a served salad! - 1/26/2011 9:18:49 AM

  • Thank you for making this printer friendly! I can take this to a restaurant and use it to make better choices. It may not be all-inclusive, but it's a great start that will help me when I am trying to make smart choices. - 7/6/2010 11:22:56 AM
