About This Quiz

Building a salad is no easy task, since there are a wide variety of ingredients to choose from. But perhaps this is where the fun lies, especially since you get to decide what kinds of textures, flavors and seasonings you want to indulge in!

So what does a salad have to do with your longevity? Well, let's just say that some ingredients, like sugary salad dressings, are more likely to subtract years from your life. In fact, salads can easily be created into an unhealthy meal, so be careful with the types of toppings that you pick in this quiz! But for the most part, salads are a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. While most salads are considered to be light meals, you can also create a hearty salad by filling it up with ingredients like eggs, avocados and chickpeas. In other words, don't be scared to eat a salad for dinner!
