Hello Lovelies, are you into salad in winter or is this something you only enjoy in summer? I really love salads all year round, in winter I love more hearty salads with the addition of seasonal veggies. My favorites include all the root veggies like beets, carrots but also parsnip or salads with cabbage, fennel, and of course with oranges, like in this recipe here. I really like the combination with warm and roasted veggies out of the oven, they make any winter salad just perfect.
For todays recipe I made potato wedges, coated with sesame and baked golden brown in the oven. Mixed with fresh baby spinach (but I think rocket or kale would be such a good match as well), crispy chickpeas and juicy cocktail tomatoes. Served with a vinaigrette from shalots, fresh basil and white balsamic.
Here is the recipe:
You can also roast the chickpeas in the oven, but roasting them in the pan is a bit quicker, so I went for this option. The kids had the leftover potatoes as fries – so they are also perfect and delicious without the salad of course.
Do you have a favorite winter salad? I would love to know. I really love the variety of salads you can make with all the seasonal winter veggies and fruits and even though im secretly longing for summer, I’m also curious about more combinations and can’t wait to explore more winter salads.
