Let me start this off by saying I love salads but I don’t particularly like making them. It’s the chopping part I hate– annoying, time consuming and slightly dangerous due to our new knife set. But this salad is worth it. Plus there’s hardly any chopping so I can’t really complain.
Kale and shaved brussels sprouts are the base of this salad and then you can basically add anything else you want to it. I’ve tried a few different variations and will give them to you here, plus an additional idea for a side dish that you can do with leftover ingredients.
As far as dressing goes, I don’t get fancy with it. I usually just go with olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon but I’ve also used dijon mustard mixed with olive oil, shallots, lemon and black pepper. You can also sub avocado oil in which is great too.
To turn this into a lunch or dinner just put a protein on top! My favorites are grilled chicken or salmon..YUM.
