7 Winter Salads That Will Make You Wish Spring Wasn't One Month Away

Wake up call! We're more than halfway through Winter, and some of the best ingredients for delicious, fulfilling salads will soon be out of season. And you know what else? Bathing suit season is just around the corner. No worries! Whip up any of these salads and you'll solve both of your problems.

Winter Salad with Roasted Beets and Citrus Reduction Dressing: Two natural wintertime partners illustrate the perfect example of opposites attracting: meaty, earthy beets, and light, bright, citrusy oranges.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cranberry-Chipotle Dressing: Thanksgiving flashbacks (the good kind) are bound to happen with this salad. Luckily, chipoltle's smoky heat will be the warm, smoky hug that eases you back to reality.

Broccoli Carpaccio with Broccoli Stalk Salad: The kiddos can have broccoli's florets. We are giving up some love for the stems; shaved thin and dressed with lemon, ginger, basil, chiles, and garlic, you will too.

Apple-Walnut, and Kale Salad: Try this one with winter pears if you aren't diggin' the apples at the grocery or want to go a little sweeter than a Granny Smith.

Grapefruit and Hearts of Palm Salad: Need a good brunch salad? This is the ticket. Serve it along with soup or quiche.

Roasted Squash Salad with Bacon and Pumpkin Seeds: Buttery squash, crunchy pumpkin seeds, and smoky bacon make this a fall salad you'll want to enjoy often. Serve with pork chops.
