Olives (and anything pickled) Olives seem to be relatively harmless, right? Well I hate to break it to you, but the dietitians I spoke to say olives don't make your salad any healthier than they make that slice of veggie pizza more nutritious. The green and black olives that regularly get sprinkled over salads are pickled -- which is just another way to say packed with sodium. The same salt factor goes for other pickled partners in crime, such as spicy banana peppers and pickled cucumbers.
Swap it: Reach for toppings with an interesting texture, like palm hearts, jicama, and artichokes, to keep your salad lively.
