January: Winter Salads

Here are a couple of winter salads to enjoy when more tender greens like lettuces and mesclun are out of season.

First Version:

1/3 head of celery, sliced across the stems
1/2 head of celeriac, julienne slice
1 head of Belgian endive, sliced
1/4 bunch of Italian parsley, coarse chop
1/4 sweet onion or to taste, sliced very thinly
1/2 head of fennel, sliced

Toss all of the vegetables with a simple fresh lemon juice and olive oil dressing.  Season with salt and pepper.

This was a very light and refreshing salad,  enough for 4 servings.

Second Version:

Equal amounts of thinly sliced:

green cabbage
fennel
celery
zucchini
chopped Italian parsley

Toasted salted sunflower seeds
Grated cheese ( whatever you have in the house )
A simple Balsamic dressing with a bit of honey mixed in

Toss your vegetables with the sunflower seeds, cheese and dressing and serve.
