This Holiday Green Salad is a great way to balance out all the sweets and high fat foods surrounding us this holiday season. In fact, wouldn’t this salad be so beautiful on the Christmas table? I think so too.
You can start with any green base you want. You will notice I rarely use kale, I just don’t like it very well. I know, I really should. I love spinach or a baby greens mix. Spread it on your plate or platter. I generally like to use plenty of greens, I can sometime get all 3 of my servings in one dish. That is a win by me! This beautiful platter is from Jefferson Ceramics. Here is a link. I just love their pottery! Plus, American made!!
Next, I added in any red fruits I found at the store the other day. I do my best to buy produce from the US and all of this passed. Blood oranges are more expensive, so I don’t use them very often. They are so beautiful though, so sometimes I can’t resist.
Raspberries have been really good recently, and although they are an indulgence with their prices, they are so worth it.
Pomegranates are a must too this time of year. I love these little jewels in my salad, they are just so pretty!!
I also added nuts, as I always like to add in some sort of crunch. I went for walnuts this time, but always love pecans and sliced almonds!
I included some of my favorite vinaigrette recipes below. I generally like a little sweeter dressing for fruit salads. If you don’t have time, there are plenty of really great dressings on the market.
So, I definitely recommend adding this Holiday Green Salad to your Christmas table. It is healthy, tasty but also so beautiful!!
Last ingredients was a queso blanco from Rizo Bros cheese. They are a California Hispanic cheese company and after testing several cheeses, I am in love! Check their link here for locations in your area.
