Recipe: Winter Chicken Salad

recipe: Salads

When the winter season offers such delicious produce (hello, pears and persimmons!) why not take every advantage to sneak them into recipes? This in-season salad is fresh, flavorful, and bursting with nutrients! If you’ve never tried walnut oil before, this sweet and tangy dressing is a great opportunity to give the omega-3 champion a chance. Ooh, and I almost forgot the crunchy toasted pine nuts on top! Convinced yet?

  • 5 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 cups red cabbage, shredded
