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…
& 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) 😉
