Winter salads are entirely different than summer salads. In mid-winter, root vegetables, bright citrus fruits, and dark greens are far more commonplace than light summer herbs and fresh, local berries. For salad eaters this means changing up the typical dinner salad to be more vegetable heavy with fewer light leafy greens. I happen to love doing this and am a big fan of winter salad making. In fact, sometime I make them hearty enough that the salad itself becomes dinner! Here are some of our favorite winter salads that are positively delicious and are healthy to boot.
