A Salad is a light meal and sometimes part of a larger meal, consisting of mixed vegetables. This usually includes about one leaf vegetable and often with a dressing or sauce. Some salads have nuts, meat, fish, poultry, and/or cheese served on the salad. Salads are seen as a healthy dish, although not always low in calories or fat with some dressings, e.g. blue cheese.
