Winter salads are definitely an exciting thing. This winter is the first time I have really looked into eating seasonally and it has opened up a whole new world when it comes to salads, something I always associated with the warmer summer months.

If you are at home and have the time to roast a parsnip for this recipe, great! If not, you could use leftover roasted parsnips from your Sunday roast and have this salad cold the following day.
I don’t often take the time to make a salad dressing, but I thought this salad was worth making one for. It was nice to toss the dressing in the salad and have everything coated rather than just drizzling it over the top. This salad tastes like the winter. It is earthy and delicious, perfect for a light meal or to go along with a main meal.
