You can certainly make a delicious and healthy salad without greens, but why miss an opportunity to get those healthy dark leafy greens into your day? Choose spinach, romaine and even finely sliced kale, which will all give you a slew of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and K and folate. Use at least 2 cups of greens, since that's what counts as a 1-cup serving of vegetables.
