Make It a Meal: Best Salads and Breads to Pair with Soup

A steaming bowl of soup just begs for a crunchy salad of fresh greens at its side and a thick slice of crusty bread to mop up the bowl. Honestly, we’d be fine with some version of this meal and nothing else for the rest of winter! If you’re looking for a few good sides to pair with your soup, we have some ideas.The star of the meal is still the soup, in our opinion, so we like salads that combine just a few ingredients with the greens and then use a light vinaigrette. A nice whole grain bread or buttery biscuit rounds everything out quite nicely.

Tasty Salads:
1. Fennel and Radicchio Winter Salad with Pecans
2. Pickled Beet and Arugula Salad
3. Spring Salad with Radishes and Pumpkin Seeds
4. Kale and Ricotta Salata Salad
5. Meyer Lemon Spring Salad with Baby Greens, Almonds, and Goat Cheese

Hearty Breads:
6. Multi-Grain Peasant Bread
7. Herbed Olive Oil Fantail Rolls
8. 15-Minute Cream Biscuits
9. Potato Dough Rolls
