Fresh Winter Greens

23 Thu, 2010 § 2 Comments

Salads are such a simple meal, so why even blog about them?

Because, for me anyway, it is not always easy to get into the mood.  I still have to resist the initial thought of “salad” equating to…a bunch of lettuce.

That is not often what I am in the mood to eat — especially in winter — so the trick is to pile my salad with things I am in the mood to eat…

like

Lentils

&

Pink Ladies

& topping it with my favorite dressing.

If I had felt like quickly toasting nuts or seeds, I would have thrown that in the mix too & made it even tastier.

I am still in love with this baby herb salad & think it is a huge reason why I am loving fresh greens right now.  If you can find one — or are daring enough to make your own — I highly recommend it.

I have to give it to some of my blogger friends for getting me to eat more salads even though it is winter.  I haven’t quite felt like steamed greens lately & am often inspired by the “simple” lunches you foodies throw together.  So I just wanted to share a quick winter salad that hit the spot.  This is especially helpful if you are like me & trying to eat super clean & load up on veggies before holiday festivities.  Obviously this is more of an idea than a recipe, because I am always in need of those myself when it comes to salads.

Now you go: what is your current favorite salad combination? (please) 😉

    I’m so boring! Mixed greens, lentils, quinoa, shredded carrots, shredded beats, red onion, and balsamic is my standard.

    I also like adding roasted veggies to mixed greens…and veggie burgers. I guess I just love salads 🙂

      Your salads are not boring! You are the one who got me excited about salads again! Adding favorites like lentils & quinoa & roasted vegetables is brilliant.
