With all the heaviness of the comfort and game day foods, isn’t is nice to just go to the grocery produce and find ways to create lighter and more healthier meals?  Even in the winter you can find some tasty combo’s to make a delicious farm fresh salad.  For my family, this is one of our favorites – both in the winter and summer.  You will LOVE!



Winter Farm Fresh Salad


Spring mix
A handful of walnuts
Dried Cranberries
Fresh (non-flavored) goat cheese
Beets (canned and drained are perfect)
Cooked corn off the cob
Sliced Green apples


Combine all this in a huge bowl and use my favorite balsamic vinegar – Cranberry Pear.


Your heart health will be much appreciative (gentle plug for February being Heart Healthy Month).   Enjoy!
