37+ Large Salads to Serve on Christmas Day

37+ Large Salads to Serve on Christmas Day

I ALWAYS look forward to discovering new recipes for salads to serve on Christmas Day! And this year is another year to taste one of those sumptuous and healthy mixed greens!

It is often 40 degrees PLUS here in some parts of Australia on Christmas Day.

Yeah – bloody hot! So the last thing I usually want is a hot lunch with gravy (even though I freaking adore gravy) because I’m sweating like a nun at a cucumber farm!

So instead of hot veggies, serve a salad— LARGE SALADS— cause we do things big in ‘Straya!
