Pinning: Winter salads

a winter salad pinboard

This year, I have no New Year’s resolutions… (I made a few last year that I still haven’t gotten around to).

I say… lets not be healthy because it’s January, let’s be healthy because it tastes good. Soups always steal the show in the wintertime (rightfully so), but lets not count out salads… especially vibrant, hearty ones full of interesting colors and textures. Here are a few from around the web that have inspired me lately. Check out my Winter Salads board to see more.

Happy Salad-ing!

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and saqid “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I love that! Let’s be healthy because it tastes good 🙂 Salads don’t have to be boring or sad. They have the potential to be a delicious experience!
