Salad seems to be the perfect lunch: light, healthy, not too expensive.

For around $10, salad deilvers a complete meal without the highly caloric bread found in its chief rival, sandwiches. Plus, salad is easy to eat at work and is packed with the fresh vegetables, hearty whole grains and clean protein needed to fuel the secret gym warrior hidden deep inside all of us.

But what if salad is a big fat lie — literally? As we found while looking at the most popular menu items at five of the nation’s favorite salad spots, plenty of these seemingly innocent lunches are bloated in both price and calories.

It's usually the dressing that adds most of the calories, fat, salt, preservatives, and artificial flavors to a salad.

Most times I will only have salt and pepper on my salads as I am not big on some of these dressings that are used.

It's like anything, the more you load on it, dressings and toppings, the higher the calories go.
