17 Easy and Delicious Salads for Women Wanting to Lose Weight ...

By Jennifer

Okay, a quick disclaimer: not all salads are going to help you lose weight! If they're loaded with croutons and swimming in dressing, you might as well be eating a burger. But some salads can be healthy, with the right calories, from fiber and protein instead of sugar and fat. Here are a few healthful, tasty salads to try.

1 Asparagus, Tomato & Feta Salad

Look, the carbs in the noodles may be daunting, but carbs aren't the worst thing in the world. Use whole grain pasta and you'll be getting some fiber, too.

Dried cranberries add a lot to the texture and flavor of the salad, but if you're not a fan, dried cherries will work, too.
