There’s a lot of heavy food that goes along with celebrating Christmas—like Christmas ham and hearty Christmas side dishes like potatoes and casseroles—to say nothing of treats like holiday cookies, pies, cakes, eggnog, etc. So we think a bright, crunchy Christmas salad makes the perfect finishing touch to any Christmas dinner menu or plate. It cleanses the palate and helps you feel as good after the meal as you do while eating it.
