Sometimes during these long cold winter months all you crave is warm, cozy comforting meals. The last thing on your mind might be a cold healthy leafy salad. But, this holiday delight is more than just a cold healthy leafy salad. It is brought to life with colorful winter flavors and in addition, it is brought to life with a very specific warm and cozy main ingredient I like to call: delicata squash. This addition to the salad makes it so warm and inviting, you can have your comfort and eat it too.
I partnered up with All of the Good Stuff to create the prettiest winter salad. They were so generous to send me some of their delicata squash from the their farmers out in Colorado. I love that I am able to utilize and incorporate all fresh farm grown items as well as support small businesses at the same time. All of the Good Stuff is a small business who also works with other small businesses and they sell fresh farm grown produce, honey, salsas, spices, seasonings, pasta sauces and more!
If you are the type of person that loves farmers markets, but don’t always have easy access to them or time time to go, All of the Good Stuff is there to be your helping hand. So, I highly recommend checking out their website and all of their goodies, becuase good news for you...they will deliver right to your doorstep!
Can we take a second and stop to appreciate how pretty this salad truly is!? It contains and abundance of flavors, colors and textures that all come together and work so well. This salad provides that healthy aspect we look for when we need a break from all of those rich, dense comforting winter meals. In addition, it is also filling and gives you a little bit of everything between fruits, vegetables, nuts, cheese. It can serve as a tasty side dish or as a main meal.
If you haven’t created your holiday menu yet, be sure to add this on there when you do! But, beware once it is on there it won’t come off because this salad is that good and will become apart of your family traditions for christmases to come.
