Do You Know What’s In Your Salad?


Applebee’s Grilled Oriental Chicken Salad with Dressing

Nutrition Facts: One salad contains 1,290 calories, 81 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 64 g sugar and 56 g protein.

Make It Healthier: Enjoy this super low-cal Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw as a side dish to your next meal (or add some chicken to make it an entree). The combo of shredded cabbage, carrots, mango and scallions, with a light sauce, makes this dish a flavor win — in addition to being gluten-free, low-carb, dairy-free, vegan and egg-free.


Texas Roadhouse’s Chicken Caesar Salad

Nutrition Facts: One salad contains 1,030 calories. Fat, saturated fat, sugar and protein counts not available.

Make It Healthier: Get a blast of nutrients by swapping out romaine or iceberg for vitamin-packed kale in our Kale Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe. By replacing croutons with roasted chickpeas, you’ll the crunch you desire without all the carbs. Add a Greek yogurt based dressing, and you’re home free.


Cheesecake Factory’s Grilled Chicken Tostada Salad

Nutrition Facts: One salad contains 1,620 calories and 108 g. Saturated fat, sugar and protein counts not available.

Fried tortillas and toppings of avocado cream, salsa and sour cream make this pick a no-go (the supersized servings don’t help, either). Heck, you could eat two slices of the Cheesecake Factory’s Low Carb Cheesecake for about the same amount of calories. In a pinch, order the chain’s Skinnylicious Mexican Tortilla salad, for only 550 calories — or whip up your own version, below.

Make It Healthier: Get the same south-of-the-border taste by prepping this Corn, Black Bean and Quinoa Salad Recipe. The quinoa serves up some extra protein, and a can of black beans makes this dish one that will keep you full ‘til your next meal. You could even add an avocado on top, if you are craving a hit of something creamy.
