With so many possibilities for salads, this week we put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with tasty winter salad recipes that are anything but boring. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Christine Ma from Cherry on My Sundae shared with us her recipe for farmers' market potato salad filled with colorful vegetables and a light vinaigrette dressing. Ma is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
  • Lori Yates of Foxes Love Lemons submitted her recipe for a chicken chopped salad that conveniently fits into a mason jar, which is perfect for lunch on-the-go. Yates is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
  • The winner this week is Donna Pelech of The Devils Food Advocate and her recipe for a wintery farro salad sprinkled with juicy pomegranate seeds. Pelech is a member of the Culinary Content Network.

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
