When we think of a fresh garden salad, any month but winter usually comes to mind: summer and its sun-warmed tomatoes ripe off the vine, spring and those nice heads of lettuce, Fall and perhaps some sliced pears. But during cold winter months, after the first frost has swooped in to claim most locally grown produce, we tend steer away from the idea of a fresh garden salad.
Yet even when snow covers the ground, there is no reason to forgo a delicious salad as a side dish or main course. After all, winter vegetables like squash, sweet potatoes, radishes and beets are packed full of nutrients, and can help make a hearty and healthy meal for any occasion.
To prove our point, we found three wonderful winter salad recipes. We hope you give them a try and let us know which one inspires your palate most; Table Twenty Eight's "Roasted Winter Vegetable Salad," The Curvy Carrot's "Warm Vegetable Salad," or Eat Live Run's "Roasted Winter Vegetable Salad." We plan to try them out too, and we'll let you know what we think next week.
