Winter Salads to Start the Year Clean
Written by Maggie Ward

A Clean Kick Off

A fresh calendar means fresh resolve to clean up our eating habits and put an end to the weeks of indulgence. Starting anew means superfoods—think grains, roots, and leafy vegetables filled with antioxidants and nutrients. Top any of these resolution-worthy salads with a light dressing for a cold-weather crunch to get you on track for the new year.

This simple salad is a great addition to the dinner table or a healthy lunch on the go. Also, who knew you could eat celery root raw? The tangy shallot vinaigrette is extremely versatile, so keep it in your back pocket when you need a go-to dressing.
