A good salad is hard to find. Many people want a salad that contains foods besides just lettuce. They still want the salads to be low in fat and calories while being filling. The best salad places near me, make a great salad. They are filling, and I still feel healthy every time I sit down and have this salad.

The best salads that I have need a crunchy aspect to them. This gives the salad some texture. I like croutons, but they often add unwanted calories to a healthy meal. Instead I add some crunch to my salad with nuts. I like walnuts and sliced almonds in my salad. Every now and again I will get a salad with pecans on top. They add some crunch to it and a little sweetness as well.

Roasted Carrot Salad
