Winter is the time when we crave warm foods, like soups and casseroles. Skimping on salads shouldn’t be the rule, however. The Winter Vitamin Salad includes all the typical fruits and berries available in the winter. It’s full of sweetness, tartness, flavor and Vitamin C. It is very pretty, too. If you don’t like the taste of goat cheese, use feta.
