Outback Steakhouse Queensland Salad

Even without dressing this salad is 839 calories, with 1,176mg of sodium. A combo of chicken salad with Monterey Jack and Cheddar, bacon, diced egg, tomatoes, toasted almonds and croutons, it's a gut buster. And the other choices are just as bad. "People think a salad is an automatic thumbs up," says Ayoob. "The problem is that the devil is in the condiments, dressings, and add-ons like the bacon bits, croutons, and fried crunchies, which are loaded with salt and probably extra calories." A slightly better choice is the shrimp Caesar Salad, made with romaine and shrimp from the barbie, which clocks in at 713 calories and 1555mg of sodium. We're sure you know by now that's just too much salt.
