Warm Salad Recipe Ideas You've Probably Never Tried

There’s nothing better than a hot meal on a cold day. When you think of warm dishes, salad probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But a warm salad can be a comforting and filling addition to any meal.


A healthy warm spinach salad recipe comes together in a flash, makes a great side dish that adds color and flavor, and is just the right temp when it’s cold outside. The key is to combine a warm mix of veggies with the raw crunch of baby spinach, which heats up just enough to wilt. Salads are nutritional superheroes, loaded with fiber and nutrients, and a warm spinach salad is an easy and delicious dish to add to your list of go-to meals.


Here are three warm salad recipes to get you started, but feel free to experiment. The warm part of the salad should include cooked veggies, like eggplant, carrots, asparagus, broccoli and cauliflower. Sauté, steam, roast or grill them to perfection. Mix with raw greens: You can substitute chopped kale, thinly sliced collard greens or arugula for the spinach, if you prefer.


Toss with your favorite salad dressing (such as Jenny Craig’s Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing), fresh citrus juice or hot sauce. You may not need much if your veggies produce enough liquid when they are cooked. Try adding fresh herbs for a little extra zing.


With only a few ingredients, these warm salad ideas will add impressive variety to mealtime. Each recipe features Fresh & Free Additions and makes at least two servings — try one for dinner tonight and bring the rest for lunch tomorrow. Veggie side dishes have never been so easy and tasty!
