The secret to making a cold-weather salad sing is in the ingredients you choose. According to Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, a plant-based registered dietitian in the New York City area and owner of Plant-Based Eats, some of the most common winter salad ingredients include roasted vegetables (ideally ones that are in-season, like winter squashes and other root vegetables), vegetarian protein sources (think beans and eggs), and dark leafy greens like arugula and spinach. Celebrity chef and certified nutritionist Serena Poon also loves to use beets, butternut squash, Brussel sprouts, root vegetables, mushrooms, ancient grains, nuts, and warming spices like garlic and ginger in her winter salads.

The beauty of salads, winter and otherwise, is that you really can’t go wrong. Choose ingredients you love, in this case, warming seasonal ingredients. Toss them together. Top everything with a dressing, and you’re good to go. But, just in case you need some winter salad recipe inspiration, keep scrolling for some recommendations from Gorin and Poon that will quickly become regulars in your winter dishes rotation.
