Hungry? Check out this list of the best leafy greens and salad vegetables. These are edible plants in which the leaves, stems, flowers, or roots can be made into delicious snacks. This list does not include edible plants that are fungi, seeds, or treated as fruits. Something to consider: the word vegetable is based on culinary tradition. It is not scientific. Edible plants traditionally used to make savory dishes are typically considered vegetables. That said, some vegetables are occasionally used to also make sweet dishes, such as carrots, rhubarb, and even avocados.

What are the best vegetables for salad? While some of the edible greens on this list may be eaten raw, more often than not, vegetables are cooked. So whether you're a vegetarian, vegan, or just a well rounded carnivore, enjoy this list of leafy greens and salad vegetables. Maybe you'll be inspired to go outside and hunt for your own leafy greens. Or maybe you'll just learn a few new things about the different types of salad greens before you eat that burger you really wanted anyway. Whatever the case, learning about these salad veggies may help you make healthy decision in the future. Eat up!
