The annual food lover’s countdown to Thanksgiving is well under way in most households! I know some people would be happy with just turkey, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie every year for Thanksgiving dinner, but for those of you who like to try new Thanksgiving Recipes every year, I’ve been sharing Thanksgiving suggestions on Facebook (are you following me there?)

For a holiday meal I’ll definitely indulge a bit, but I also try to have some delicious carb-conscious options. And I think every Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner needs a special salad as part of the menu, so here are Ten Low-Carb Winter Salads for Holiday Dinners. All these low-carb winter salads are favorite salads that I’ve made many times, and each one is a bit more special than the usual salads you make for a week-night dinner!

What makes these winter salads?

I’m calling these winter salads because they use ingredients like spinach, arugula, kale, broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, that are in season during the winter months.

How do you get the complete recipe?

Just click the recipe title under any photo to see the complete recipe on the blog, and enjoy!

Spinach Salad with Cranberries, Almonds, and Goat Cheese finished salads on plates

This Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese is really a wow. The dried cranberries do have some carbs, so go easy on those or omit them completely for the lowest-carb version.

Stir together the broccoli, feta, and half the almonds and toss with the dressing.  Serve salad right away, sprinkling the rest of the almonds on top.

Broccoli Salad with Feta and Almonds is so, so good. DO NOT skip the fried almonds; they make this salad!

If you’re not a fan of kale, just use all romaine lettuce in this Caesar Salad with Kale, Romaine, and Shaved Parmesan!

Not everyone would welcome arugula on the holiday table. But arugula fans like me will devour Kalyn’s Favorite Baby Arugula Salad. I would never get tired of this salad, and I especially like the addition of pine nuts!

And I guess this Arugula Salad with Artichokes, Peppers, and Goat Cheese is not strictly a winter salad, but all these ingredients are available in the winter, and I love, love, love this colorful salad!
