Q: My consumption of raw vegetables usually goes down during the winter, when I opt for casseroles, soups and other comfort foods. I'd like to keep eating raw veggies throughout the year though. Any recipe ideas for doing so when the mercury dips?

Editor: Jenika, fennel, kale, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and cabbage are a few winter vegetables that taste great raw in salads. Here are a couple of my favorite winter salads:
→ Cauliflower, Fennel and White Bean Winter Salad
→ Kale Salad With Pecorino and Lemon
Readers, what are your favorite ways to eat raw vegetables during the colder months?
