Fresh Winter Salads

Tired of the same old winter vegetables? If it seems like all there is to eat in the produce department in winter is broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts, take a fresh look at winter vegetables and a new look at how to prepare them. Give those winter vegetables a complete makeover by paring them with other vegetables, greens, nuts, cheeses, fruits, rices, beans, meats, poultry or seafood in salads!

By simply changing the style of the dish you are going to prepare to a ‘salad’, you open the door to limitless possibilities. Salads have no limits in ingredients, style or flavorings. Add sliced beets, fennel, carrots, broccoli or any winter vegetable to a few greens and add cooked chicken or prawns, a few shavings of Parmesan Reggiano, a few sprinkles of your favorite dressing and you have winter vegetables extraordinare!
