Warm Winter Salads: suitable for the low fodmap, diabetic, vegetarian, lactose and gluten intolerant diets

Warm winter salads are great with any dish, or as simple meal. In the colder months I crave fresh vegetable salads so I make a lot of warm salads with only very lightly cooked vegetables.  The colour and slight crunch of the salads remind me of summer and the vitamins and minerals help to keep me well.
Here are a few of my favourite winter salads.  All the recipes for these salads and the dressings can be found in the Recipe section of this blog.
