Simple, fresh, and perfect for you Brussels Sprout lovers!
Today I bring you a powerhouse of a salad. We are leaving behind the traditional romaine for hearty and nutrient rich Brussels Sprouts. Then we’re tossing it with a nice creamy dressing, and topping it with some toasted up croutons. Yum.
An easy spin on a classic.
Brussels not only pack a huge flavor punch, but contain sulforaphane, a chemical believed to contain anti-cancer properties, and are also a great source of belly filling plant based protein and fiber and immune boosting vitamin C. There’s no telling what will happen when you put this crispy, crunchy, and savory salad down on the table.
This is not one to be missed.
