Winter Green Salad


Winter is here which means it’s time to bundle up in warm clothes, drink hot cocoa with marshmallows, and cook hearty soups. One of my favorite winter recipes are green salads because they’re so refreshing. This Winter Green Salad has a lot of different textures that will keep your mouth happy!
The dressing is made from garlic cloves, lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. I like adding fresh parsley for color and an extra pop of flavor. The best part about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time so when you get home you have dinner ready to go!
