Ten Low-Carb Winter Salads for Holiday Dinners
My Ten Low-Carb Winter Salads for Holiday Dinners are perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, and you can enjoy these tasty salads all winter long!
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!
Broccoli Salad with Feta and Almonds is so, so good. DO NOT skip the fried almonds; they make this salad!
I love this Brussels Sprouts Salad with Bacon, Almonds, and Parmesan so much I’d eat it any time of year when I could find Brussels sprouts!
If you like spinach salad, you’re going to love this Spinach Salad with Bacon and Feta!
This Peperoncini Chopped Salad with Romaine, Peppers, and Feta is a favorite of many people in my extended family, and it’s always a hit no matter when I serve it!
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!
Another option for arugula fans is this gorgeous Arugula Salad with Feta. You can go easy on the dressing for even less carbs if you prefer.
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!
What’s your family’s favorite salad to serve for a holiday dinner?
