Do try to find watermelon radishes if you can! The bright splash of pink looks gorgeous in this green and gold slaw.

Rainbow chard with a maple-vinegar drizzle

I love chard so very much, but for whatever reason I haven’t eaten much in the past few month. This salad brought my love for the green back with a vengeance, and it made sure I wouldn’t forget it again anytime soon.

Marinated chickpeas with olives, roasted red peppers and raisins over greens

This is a nice sweet, salty salad with a bit of a nutty undertone, thanks to the walnut oil. No dressing required. Just spoon the chickpea mixture over top of fresh, bright baby greens, and enjoy!

Chicken salad with green tahini sauce and chickpeas

I made the tahini sauce before I ever considered using it on a chicken salad. I was spattering it occasionally on greens and roasted vegetables before I noticed the jar of sauce sitting next to a container of poached chicken. The best combinations are sometimes right in front of your face. (P.S. – Make this salad the night before and take it to work the next day. It’s best after sitting overnight.)

All of the measurements in this recipe are approximations. And dressing substitutions can easily be made, especially if you don't have access to one of those ridiculous (but awesome) specialty oil and vinegar stores. Swap in white wine vinegar for the peach balsamic, or scrap the homemade dressing completely and go for a store-bought champagne vinaigrette or raspberry vinaigrette. Please preserve the trifecta of pomegranate, pecans and toasted coconut, though. That's where it's at.

Broccoli-chickpea salad with barley

I love how supernaturally green broccoli gets when you give it a bit of a flash steam on the stove — it makes it feel that much healthier, right?

Grapefruit, avocado and chicken over greens

I made this salad right after my yoga class this past Sunday — so basically I felt like the world’s healthiest human ever. The fatty avocado and protein-rich chicken help pull the bitter greens and sour grapefruit back a few notches, right into the Perfection Zone.

Kale and Brussels sprouts salad

This may look like a boring salad, but it’s surprisingly complex. The original recipe called for Tuscan kale, but I used a more traditional curly kale that I found at the farmer’s market. Tuscan may be a milder version, but the Dijon dressing in this recipe helps tame any kale’s bitterness.

Winter cobb salad with a creamy citrus dressing

I love the creaminess of cobb salad dressings, and the citrus flavors in this version give it a wintery boost — in addition to the Christmas-style red and green of the pomegranate and Brussels. There are a lot of flavors and textures to this dish, but certainly not too many that the eater gets lost.

Kale, sweet potato, farro and pomegranate salad

This is one of those great salads where a dressing really isn’t necessary — the ingredients are flavorful and moist enough on their own. And those colors… holy cow. It almost seems unfair that this is so healthy, because it feels like it should be a diet splurge.
