Menu Monday: The Christmas Salad

The holidays evoke warm feelings of comfort, peace and joy. As a result, you may find that you gravitate toward foods that do the same…which are not always considered healthy and nourishing for the body.

But who said the holidays couldn’t be healthy?

Here is my favorite red and green holiday-inspired salad recipe that you could easily pair with any entree.

 

Christmasy Salad With Tangy Dill Dressing 

  • 4 C kale and/or collards cut
  • 1 C green cabbage chopped
  • 1 C red cabbage chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 C radishes finely chopped
  • 2 apples chopped (I prefer Granny Smith)
  • 1 large mango finely chopped
  • 3/4 seeds from a pomegranate
  • 2 avocados diced

 

 

Dressing
