I know salads generally aren’t the first thing you think of making this time of year. All kinds of comforting, warming foods are most likely on the menu. The usual salad suspects, like tomatoes and cucumbers, out of season and flavorless, don’t make the thought of eating your greens any more appealing.
But I think this salad might just change your mind. It’s simple to make, has beautiful color and pairs very well with a hearty soup, say minestrone, or even good ol’ homemade mac & cheese.

For the salad:

Here’s hoping this salad will bring a little green into your winter menu.
