If you think salads are only for warm weather, be ready to have your mind blown. Believe me, these are perfect and so satisfying when the temperature is dropping outside. Roasted veggies, thinly sliced fruit, quinoa—drooling yet? As for dressing, leave the murky bottled ranch in the back of your fridge and reach for fresh citrus, honey, and seasonal spices instead.
