Enjoy this light, fresh salad packed with heart-healthy ingredients from the salad dressing down to the last green leaf.

Spinach is rich in anti-oxidants and soluble fiber, nutrients that are associated with foods that help prevent heart disease. This dark green vegetable is also rich in folate, which helps to lower homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an amino acid acquired mostly from eating meat. High homocysteine levels are linked with the early development of heart and blood vessel disease.
