Some salad recipes require one to use additives. Avoid the use of some specific cooked ingredients and commercially made additives to your salad. The additives may prevent you from getting all the health benefits of salad as they counteract all the goodness. The main culprits here are the salad dressings.

You can instead make your dressing using healthy oil, herbs or lemon.
