But today, we're looking into one food in particular that is generally good for you, but can occasionally be ruined -- salads!

Yes, the salad -- one of the most common "healthy" go-to dishes. But the truth is, just as any other food -- with certain things added and layered, it can be a recipe for disaster. Here are 5 salads that may sound ridiculously delicious, but are actually seriously bad for you.
