Honeyed Winter Salad

This winter salad is the perfect way to use all those autumn coloured vegetables that seem to be magically appearing in the garden at the moment. Needless to say the supermarkets will probably have at least one of these ingredients on offer too! If the salad lacks inspiration – you could add some cooked beef or chicken to the recipe to add a more protein too.
