Winter Vegetable salad

During the winter I find it a little harder to eat salads, however it’s still really important to make sure you are getting in raw vegetables. Raw vegetables are full of great nutrients, vitamins and enzymes that cooked foods lack. One way I make sure I’m eating salads this time of year is I load them up with my favorite things, like this one has pomegranate seeds, which I absolutely love!
