If you, like me, enjoy a good salad when you eat out, you might want to stay away from these salads that can make you fat!

Sadly, I love a good main dish salad.

I used to like to order side salads before my meal, but lately I've noticed even those salads are covered in cheese & other high cal goodies.

I've found that most restaurants are pretty accommodating when I order my salads the way I want them and with the dressing on the side.

I don't eat anything with wheat in it so I find myself ordering salads quite frequently. I do make sure to stay away from the dressing. Many salads have dressing that will have 20+ grams of fat. This is definitely not a healthy alternative.
