of the same old winter vegetables? If it seems like all there
is to eat in the produce department in winter is broccoli,
cauliflower and brussel sprouts, take a fresh look at winter
vegetables and a new look at how to prepare them. Give those
winter vegetables a complete makeover by paring them with
other vegetables, greens, nuts, cheeses, fruits, rices, beans,
meats, poultry or seafood in salads!
By simply changing the style of the dish
you are going to prepare to a salad, you open
the door to limitless possibilities. Salads have no limits
in ingredients, style or flavorings. Add sliced beets, fennel,
carrots, broccoli or any winter vegetable to a few greens
and add cooked chicken or prawns, a few shavings of Parmesan
Reggiano, a few sprinkles of your favorite dressing and you
have winter vegetables extraordinare!
