There are two types of salads in the world. First, there’s the sad salad that you eat on the side of your real meal. It provides just enough greens to make you feel like you ate something nutritious. And then, there is something more glorious: a proper salad. A dinner salad, some would say. It’s a work of art, a creation unto itself. You can throw out your iceberg and your sad pre-shredded carrots and indulge in something that’s, dare we say it, as tasty as a burger. Wondering how to make one of these salads for yourself? Check out these ideas for delicious winter salads.
Parmesan Brussels Sprout Salad
Bet you never thought a salad could taste this good. This Parmesan Brussels sprouts salad packs a ton of flavor, and it’s actually really good for your body, too. All those vegetables pack an incredible crunch, and the Parmesan offers just the tang and the creaminess you need to balance out all those veggies. Don’t forget to add pomegranates on top, which take this salad from simply tasty to a downright centerpiece.
Kale Salad with Apples and Toasted Nuts
Sometimes, you need to keep it both simple and nutritious. That’s where this kale salad enters the mix. Apples, dried cherries, toasted nuts, and feta cheese make this salad an amazing mixture that you can go back to again and again. And since it’s a relatively simple salad, it’s something that you can throw together just about any day of the week — or even make a couple swaps to mix things up. Don’t have dried cherries? Use raisins or dried cranberries instead. Not in the mood for feta? Cube up whatever cheese you have on hand and add it to the mix. We also love this option because it keeps well when you pack it for lunch.
