Class up your salad with a little bubbly! “The combination of canola oil and almonds provide just enough of the "right" fat to leave you satisfied and full without offering too many calories from fat,” says Allison Stowell, RD for Guiding Stars, an objective food rating system for consumers. “And this salad gets high marks from me for the nutrient-rich spinach and strawberries.”
