Can you choose a healthy salad and avoid hidden calories when dining out? Registered dietitian Susan Bowerman breaks down two restaurant salads and shows you what to look for in a healthy salad. Restaurant salads can be loaded with hidden fat and calories; so much that you might as well have ordered a hamburger or eaten four slices of pepperoni pizza. When dining out at restaurants, be sure to take a close look at the ingredients in the salads. A Barbeque Chicken Salad could be up to 1,267 calories, 62 grams of fat, and 2,750 milligrams of sodium. Part of the reason is that the salad contains high calorie ingredients such as cheeses, fried tortilla strips, fried onions, and ranch dressing. On the other hand a salad’s name could also be misleading. For example, when you see ‘Ahi Crunchy Salad’ on the menu you may think crunchy means there’s something fried in the salad. In this case Asian slaw is what’s adding the crunch. The Ahi Crunchy Salad is about 690 calories, 39 grams of fat, and 1,600 milligrams of sodium. If you’re going out to eat, look very closely at the menu descriptions. If you see crunchy, fried, crispy, then read the description more carefully and look for the ingredients. High fat ingredients like fried wontons, tortilla strips, croutons, or cheese are things that can really add up a lot of calories in your salad. An additional tip: if you use about half the dressing, you could cut out a significant amount of fat and salt. When dining out read the descriptions in the menu, if you’re not sure ask your server, and that way you can make an informed choice.
