Actually, by winter time, I'm sick and tired of those salads and hopeful to have some vegetables with nice butter, garlic and cheese on them, for a good taste. Not everyone likes salads day in and day out, no matter how fresh the stuff is.

My sister fixed a delicious salad one Christmas. It was baby spinach, dried cranberries, gorgonzola cheese, and pecans, topped with a vinaigrette dressing. It was a great start to Christmas dinner.

Some of my favorite salads right now are a persimmon, goat cheese, pecan salad with a cranberry vinaigrette. And a beet, burrata salad with a honey-sherry vinaigrette.

I appreciate this article so much. In the summer, we belong to a CSA and eat tons of salad, then as the weather turns colder, I just don't feel like eating those salads anymore. This article tells me how to adapt salads for the colder weather, and I will definitely try some of these suggestions. Thank You.

It's like you were reading my mind a day late! I was searching for winter salads yesterday while planning my menu for the week. I ended up finding a roasted beet salad that I'm looking forward to trying in a couple of days.

I'll be adding this to my favorites so I can try one or two of your suggestions for next week's menu! Thanks :)

One of my favorite winter salads uses beet greens. It's made with roasted beets (save the greens for the salad, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries, shredded purple cabbage, feta, and cranberry balsamic dressing. Adding some romaine in with the beet greens is also delicious.

One of my winter salad favorites is spinach or romaine & fresh orange slices, topped with a little low fat sesame ginger salad dressing. This salad is so refreshing in the winter! Sometimes I add a few slivered almonds or diced celery for crunchiness.

I love salad. Just a plain old salad. Sometimes with turkey and ham. Thanks for the article.

I would like to know if anyone has a recipe for broccoli salad. Please let me know and a good salad is a three bean salad.

Pasta salad sounds good for dinner next week! This week will be arugula with cranberries and a low fat creamy horseradish dressing, topped with warm sauteed mushrooms. Very wintery!!

I am inspired to make more pasta salads. My summer staple (esp. for gatherings) is rainbow rotini, chicken breast, olives, tomatoes and italian and/or ranch. (Well, might need to rethink that to make sure it's lowfat). I'm also starting to use more ancient grains like quinoa. Thanks for the tips.

These were great ideas but all but most of the salads gave calories for the entire recipe. You had to do a makeover to get an idea of nutrition in a single serving...

A salad is a wallet-friendly meal, because you can use up the tiniest amounts of meat and fish - yet it miraculously flavours your pasta - or rice salad and gives it a nice texture.
Also delicious vor vegetarians : fried tofu cubes mixed with bulgur , tomatoes and mint leaves, in a raspberry vinegar dressing.
