Salad is the epitome of light food. This is true in principle, but if it is prepared incorrectly, the salad becomes a real fatty food. Fatty dressings, luxurious ingredients and the like ensure that salads are anything but figure-friendly. For example, the extremely tasty Caesar can pack up to 900 calories per serving.
