The Best Winter Salad Recipes (1)

I adore salads…even during the winter months. The best winter salads are those that offer a refreshing change from the heavy meals we often eat during this time of year.

For a lighter, refreshing alternative to your hearty cold-weather meals (and to get you geared up for spring!) below are a few of the best winter salad recipes from around the web:

My super simple quinoa, beet, and arugula salad with lemon tahini dressing is currently on the rotation. I created this delight for my Inspired Vegetarian column on Healthy Aperture.

Warm + Roasted Winter Salad Bowl

This salad is a great example of how Angela with Oh She Glows loves her salads in the winter – warm, hearty, and bursting with nutrition. The ultimate bowl of winter comfort food!


Kale, Lentil & Roasted Beet Salad

Dana at The Minimalist Baker is sure to impress with this hearty salad. This salad is everything good about winter all rolled into one. Hearty greens, leeks, beets, lentils, nuts. What more could a girl ask for?!


Winter Salad with Kale and Pomegranate

Erin from Well Plated makes a winter salad using two of my favorites…feta cheese and pomegranates. This is as delicious as it is gorgeous!

This may look like summer on a plate, but I can assure you that Lindsay and Taylor at Love and Olive Oil have used ingredients from the winter season. How scrumptious does this look?!
