This is a scrumptious use of leftover Christmas turkey. Serve on little gem leaves, or use to fill sandwiches. Then stand back and enjoy the compliments! You could just as easily use it any time of the year with leftover roast chicken.

A really, truly gorgeous dried fruit salad that I serve in the evenings to share with my mum and sisters over a good movie. Of course you don't have to use organic food or rainforest honey... but sometimes these little touches help I think. Add the pine nuts however much or little you like them, about 2 tablespoons is good for me.

This variation on the classic egg mayonnaise uses little quail's eggs with a creamy yet light mayonnaise and yoghurt dressing. It is combined with mixed leaves, cucumber and slivers of succulent smoked salmon. All you need to accompany the dish is some brown or wholemeal bread.

A lovely vinaigrette is combined with cranberries, toasted pecans, red onion and feta cheese. This is a special salad that is especially nice during the festive season.

This is one of my favourite recipes for a tasty autumn / winter salad. I love the contrast of sweet, ripe pears and a spicy vinaigrette. I used lollo rosso but you can use any other kind of lettuce. A fresh baguette goes really well with it.

This salad is full of robust flavours - a perfect side to a roast dinner, or top with a chicken breast to make it a supper on its own.

This is a lovely crunchy salad for winter, full of contrasting tastes and tossed with an unusual dressing made from cranberry sauce and walnut oil. Red cabbage makes an interesting base, but does tend to stain the other ingredients, so serve the salad as soon as everything has been mixed together.
