While salads may seem exclusive to those happy summer months we spend in the garden, or eating things from others’ gardens, a winter salad can be just as gorgeously appetizing. By using cold-weather veggies, you can craft a substantial salad whose flavors and textures can fuel you through even the snowiest day.
This COLDCO Farm Winter Salad recipe is made special with bitter Italian greens, parmesan, hazelnuts, and a tangy vinaigrette. COLDCO co-founder Joddo Ends has made a deep study of rare and heirloom Italian lettuces, radicchios, chicories, and more. Because his travels to Italy and his conversations with farmers there have inspired him to grow these photogenic (and entirely wonderful) cold-weather salad-making essentials, we recommend you toss up a bowl as soon as you can.
