    I am also one of the genetically cilantro-challenged.

    Salad is only healthy if it isn't heavily covered in dressing and sauces.

    Nutella is an oversweet insult to both chocolate and hazelnuts.

    That's a great description of Nutella!

    As someone who doesn't chocolate and hazelnuts - nutella is perfect, it doesn't taste like any of those

    Do the sauces cancel out the nutrition of the salad? Why wouldn't it still be healthy? Calorie dense does not equal unhealthy.

    True. Also, you can make a low cal dressing. I like to include a little olive oil, which ups the cals, but much less than in a traditional vinagriette, and if one wants just a good vinegar and a good mustard can make a nice dressing for few cals. So I don't get the "unhealthy" claim at all.

    I still wouldn't "heavily cover" the salad, but salad is better with some kind of dressing IMO.

    This afternoon, I had just such a dressing of simple white balsamic vinegar and bit of mustard on a salad of pea shoots, bean sprouts, flavor bomb tomatoes, and a whole bunch of tiny lettuces harvested from my thriving little new Aerogarden.

    I expected not being able to use Bolthouse dressings once starting Paleo to be hard but I really like apple cider vinegar, herbs, and citrus juice a lot. Salsa verde is great on it too.

    I like cilantro a lot (no weird genetic quirk making it taste bad here), but my favorite herb is probably dill, which is great in a basic salad and also goes with many other foods.
