Winter is all about carbs and stodge right? Wrong! One of the perfect dishes to make in January is a winter salad. Filling and healthy at the same time, a salad can nourish us, keep our healthy eating on the straight and narrow and give us an energy and mood boost at the same time. When you think about it, why would we eat anything else this month?
- Red cabbage, apple and cranberry sound like a delicious combination to us, and this salad over on The Circus Gardener’s Kitchen contains all three.
- This salad of roasted vegetables and bulgur wheat would make an amazing side dish if you don’t fancy it as a main. Nice work, Eat Drink Cook!
- Emily at A Mummy Too has a blinder of a winter salad over on her blog. Her beetroot and feta salad with cous cous would go well with a cheeky glass of red, tonight, don’t you think?
- Leaves, cheese and bread sounds like a sarnie but as Karen from Lavender and Lovage shows, it’s actually a filling salad.
- Kellie from Food To Glow is loving the energy supplied by this citrus and roasted vegetables salad with pomegranate dressing – and she needs it, living in chilly Edinburgh.
- Packed with protein, this sprout, chicken and pecorino salad from Easy Teas could be adapted with turkey or ham and be just as tasty.
- Along with talking about how far salads have come in the last 30 years, Sarah from Maison Cupcake delivers this colourful and tasty looking beetroot salad with edamame soy beans.
- We love the idea of this sweet and sour winter salad by Bangers and Mash. Looks crunchy and zingy!
- Roasted butternut squash, shallots, thyme, walnuts topped with goat’s cheese? Yes please, The Model Foodie! As Julie Andrews sang, these are a few of our favourite things.
- Another one with squash and goat’s cheese, but Be Nourishd has added roasted veg and spelt to her winter salad.
