Six Hearty Winter Salads

Salads are one of the first meals people turn to when eating healthy but you can often end up feeling a bit cheated in the flavour department. There is no reason why healthy and flavorful can’t exist in the same sentence. A good place to start is with salads but not just any plain old salad. With a little creativity and preparation, a hearty salad is fulfilling, delicious and satisfying which is a sure fire way to sticking to those healthy intentions.

Here are some great ideas:

1. Crisp Escarole Salad with Garlicky Anchovy Dressing

    (pair with Sauvignon Blanc or Nebbiolo aka Barolo)


2. Bitter Greens with Almonds and Goat Cheese

    (pair with Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio)


3. Butternut Squash Salad with Hazelnuts

    (pair with a Gewurztraminer)


4. Warm Duck and Cabbage Salad

     (pair with a Pinot Noir)

 5. Tofu Watercress Salad with Thai Dressing

     (pair with a Riesling)

 6. Spinach and Shrimp Salad with Chili Dressing

    (pair with a Pinot Grigio)
