Brussels Sprouts Salad

brussels sprouts salad

Well….I thought I knew but I had no idea what living really was until I ate this…..so fresh, so good for you AND so tasty! I perked up like a plant does when you water it! Nutrient overload! Yes! This is what I strive for in my meals and hope that you will too! I want you to feel ALIVE!

Back to the sprouts….Take about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of raw Brussels Sprouts and chop off the ends (discard them)

Peel apart what you can of the sprouts and chop up the rest. Place all  on your plate and get ready to create something beautiful!

Add:

4 oz chicken breast (I made a whole chicken on Sunday and had this chilled and stored in the fridge for the week so I just grabbed some and chopped it up) highly recommend this! Makes meal prep so easy!

1/4 c chopped mango

1/4 chopped red grapes

about 2 tsp. feta cheese

about 2 tsp. chopped up celery

1 TBSP pepitas  or sunflower seeds

I am sure it would be lovely with other ingredients too but this is what I had on hand. I could see it with sweet potatoes, pomegranate seeds, strawberries, nuts, mixed with spinach leaves…you get my drift…create a magical combo on your own if you want, you don’t have to follow any of my recipes to a tee!

Dressing:

Mix 1 part vinegar, 2 parts oil (like olive) and 3 parts water. Add a dash of cinnamon, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin and honey. Whisk together and serve.

Boom. Alive.

Enjoy!!
