Crunchy Winter Salad

Crunchy Winter Salad

I love this fresh winter salad that is marinated in tangy citrus vinaigrette and topped with roasted walnuts.  Serve as a side dish or a light main course.  Your choice.



1 Cup Small Broccoli Florets

1 Cup Small Cauliflower Florets

1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 Teaspoon zest and 2 Tablespoons Juice From 1 Orange

3 Sliced Carrots

1 Sliced Green Apple

1/2 Cup Roasted Walnuts

1/2 Cup Croutons

1/4 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

1/2 Cup Rinsed & Dried Spinach


Put all of the ingredients except for the walnuts into a large size bowl.  Toss well. Cover and chill the salad for 4 hours.  Remove from the fridge and scatter the toasted walnuts over the top and serve. Serves 4
