how do you build a NUTRITIOUS veggie salad?

Joe Berger | Sep 21, 2007 07:09 AM

medical studies keep showing how eating fresh fruits and vegetables are a perfect life extending way to provide nutrition without excess calories, so my question is; exactly what vegetables are best combined to give you a that well rounded "multivitamin" of nutrition.

for example, I like to combine the following for my daily salad;

red or green leaf lettuce
tomato and cucumber
pinto, black, red, garbanzo beans
chopped gherkins pickles instead of dressing.

so what commonly available vegetables should I add would provide some of the nutrients I may be missing from this daily salad, without adding too much sugar or starch vegetables?

I was thinking of adding Mushroom, but what else should I consider adding or omitting?

say you could walk up to a salad bar and then combine anything you wanted, so exactly what would you select for perfect well rounded nutrition, not just for flavor preference.

If you have links to other web sights that study this issue,
as well as how to build the perfect Nutritious FRUIT salad,
I would be very grateful for those references even by email;
