In the majority of salads, mineral salts are an important ingredient.
Meat and fish salads are the only ones in which the mineral salts are
not especially desirable, but they can be improved if a certain amount
of vegetables are mixed with them.
Green-vegetable salads are the most valuable sources of mineral salts,
and fruit salads come next. In addition, these two varieties of salads
contain vitamines, which are substances necessary to maintain good
health. Cheese and egg salads, which are high-protein salads, are also
valuable for the vitamines they supply.
