Tip for Winter Salads

It’s summer here and while we swim in the pool to get cool and pick wild tomatoes to nibble on with a drink at sunset, all you in the Northern hemisphere are feeling the winter cold and a scarcity of salads. Even in winter a salad is a good side dish to accompany any meal, and full of roughage and nutrients.
When salad vegetables are scares and expensive, use thinly sliced cabbage, red or white; tiny raw cauliflower florets; crisp shredded Brussel sprouts; grated carrots; any nuts; dried fruit, apricots quarted, pears sliced, currents, raisins and sultans soaked in warm water until plum; and citrus fruit to garnish.
Use your imagination. Mix colours and textures to please the eye and pallet.
