Your family is sure to love these 10 Christmas salad recipes, that I’ve hand picked for you to try.
- Apple Cranberry Fruit Salad
The sweet cooked cranberries are the real stars of the dish, and make it uniquely special to this time of year. It’s always a crowd favorite too. It’s simple, but festive and delicious!
- Beet, Orange and Arugula Salad
The oranges in this sweet and pungent salad will look like blood oranges after they sit for a little while with the beets. This makes a pretty Christmas salad. Try to find the wispy wild arugula, which is more pungent than regular arugula.
- Potato Salad with Green Beans and Asparagus
This salad works really well at either room temperature or served cold. It has a bold, tangy taste thanks to the dijon mustard vinaigrette. I usually serve this as a side salad but it’s a versatile recipe – you can just add some arugula and olives if you want to make it a main dish.
- Creamy Broccoli Salad
Need an easy side dish? Make this Creamy Broccoli Salad! It’s full of fresh broccoli, red onion, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and bacon mixed in a creamy, delicious dressing. This classic is always a hit!
- Cranberry Almond Spinach Salad
Here is a simple Cranberry Spinach Salad with a Sesame Seed Dressing that would be perfect to serve on Christmas. It’s got the perfect blend of sweet + savory + toasted crunchy goodness and you’ll love every last bite of it. This salad is a breeze to make and the only chopping required is for the shallot, gotta love that!
- Fresh Green Bean, Walnut, & Feta Salad
The flavor combination of this salad may sound a tad bit, well … strange … to some, but believe me, it’s aMAZing. The snap of fresh green beans, with the crunch of chopped walnuts, the saltiness of crumbled Feta, and refreshing zing of fresh mint pair just beautifully. In a most surprisingly wonderful way.
- Pomegranate Orange Salad
A delicious and healthy salad perfect for winter or a special Christmas dinner. This salad is topped with fresh oranges, pomegranate arils, sliced almonds, chopped avocado, and feta cheese.
- Creamy Cinnamon Apple and Walnut Fruit Salad
Apples, walnuts and cinnamon just go together, and fruit salads with cream cheese (or in this case light cream cheese) are pretty much the best so you basically already know this is going to be good before tasting it. I love all the textures and flavors in this apple fruit salad.
- Roasted Beetroot, Goats Cheese & Walnut Salad
Roasted beetroot salad, with goats cheese and walnuts, is the perfect side dish for Christmas. Simple to make, it transports well for a meal with friends.
- Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing
This recipe is enough for a small crowd but it can definitely be scaled down if you just to make it for a smaller number of people for dinner . And just like any fruit salad this is a versatile recipe, you can swap out the fruits for others you may have on hand like pears, tangerines, mangos, pineapple, etc.
