In the wintertime, your body craves warming, grounding foods. But after a while, those heavier foods can leave you feeling a bit, well, heavy.

And the citrusy, bright salads you would normally crave in the summertime just won’t cut it at this time of year. Blame it on the rain, snow and blustery wind, right?

Well, I hate to rub in the fact that I’m in gorgeous summer weather at the moment…so I’ve whipped up something special for you. The best of both worlds, a warming cauliflower and prosciutto salad!

You’ll have to excuse the shadowy photos (I don’t travel with all my photo gear), but I just couldn’t wait till I got back to send you this one.

Sauté some thinly chopped cauliflower and brussels spouts, add some heartiness with prosciutto and cheesy goodness with the chevre – and you’ve got yourself one fine winter salad. A warming cauliflower and prosciutto salad.

If you’re dairy-free, you can easily omit the chevre, but if you tolerate dairy, you’re in luck. ‘Cause this one is a goody!
