Winter Green Salad

Recipe by  

"People tend to forget to eat salads and other raw foods in the cold weather. This salad is a good way to get your greens by combining somewhat heartier salad textures. I find that this salad is filling enough to be a main course, with a bit of bread or some rice cakes on the side. It will also work as an appetizer in a smaller serving."

Oh, YUM! What a deliciously wonderful salad! The dressing is just perfect! The only change I made was to omit the collard leaves. Otherwise this recipe is plain perfect! I want to arrange a dinner party just to present this salad! Thank you very much for the recipe!

I made this salad two nights in a row and each time I was assembling the ingredients I was thinking, "really??" But it works! And it's amazing! There are a lot of ingredients but it comes together very quickly and is beautiful to boot! That said, I had to make some changes... no collard greens or romaine at the store, so I used boxed spring mix and more kale; no orange pepper; toasted almond slivers instead of walnuts; half a small red cabbage; cut the oregano to 1/2 tsp (I don't like oregano). Leftovers are okay because the dressing doesn't soak everything. Just incredible!

I just made the vinaigrette from this recipe and added it to my salad along with avocado. It is delicious! I'm never buying store bought dressing again. Fresh is so much better!

This review is for the dressing only. I was looking for a MyPlate homemade salad dressing and came across this one. The ingredient list looks very strange to me. I'm not sure I would have ever made it had all the reviewers before me not given this salad a glowing report. I'm so glad I did though. The dressing is delicious, and just a little gives great flavor to the salad. Definitely a keeper!

My family and I have enjoyed this salat tonight and it was loved by ALL!!! The receipe is spot on. The crunch of greens and veggies and walnuts, along with savory flavors and hint of sweetness of the dressing and pear. Lastly it looked fabulous and is super healthy. ITS A WINNER.

Loved this salad! All the different ingredients made for wonderful flavour combinations. I didn't have collard greens, so used spinach and spring mix greens instead. The dressing was really nice. My husband commented on the dressing, as well as how nice the pears were.

Best salad I have ever had! Used kale and regular mixed salad and toasted almonds instead of walnuts.

I LOVE this. I hadn't ever used collard greens in a salad before, but I am so glad we tried it... the kids couldn't get enough. The crunch and the depth of flavor from all the greens is amazing. I would recommend NOT replacing with spinach ('tho I love a good spinach salad!) because it's just such a wonderful, unique change of flavor.
