It’s easy to get on a soup kick in the wintertime, but there are still lots of seasonal salad options, even as the cold weather has taken hold. We are fortunate to be able to get local, greenhouse-grown lettuce until spring returns, but cabbage or kale or other winter-hardy greens would work just as well.
Fill your plate with…
2c / 500ml lettuce, washed and torn
1 pear, sliced
Drizzle with a mixture of 1/2 T or 7ml each
Then grate or crumble 1 oz aged cheddar or other cheese you need to use up since the holidays
And sprinkle with 1T / 15ml chopped walnuts or spiced nuts – (thanks for these @dickiedanger @icfplanetweird) and 1T / 15ml raisins.
Switch out the greens, the pears for apples or citrus, different nuts (or even cooked pulses) and cheese – and your winter salad repertoire will be infinite.
