Sometimes eating a salad after a meal and not before like Europeans do it is better for digestion then a salad rich in fiber on an empty stomach. Also the type of greens maybe an issue, like iceberg verses leaf or baby greens for example. Also spinach salads also maybe an issue for some because of the high iron content in it.

Although salads are healthy they have:tomatoes (citric acid)lettuce (Roughage)dressing (oily)I only eat salads when I am feeling great otherwise they can set my stomach off. Any foods that are hard to digest (cabagge, califlower, lettuce ect.) easily set my stomach off.
