No: The salad is fine. More importantly, you breathing in pollution is more concerning. Are you next to a factory or bus station? As far as I know, your city does not have significant pollution as a whole according to the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs. http://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/latest/currentlevels
