Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Posted by on Jun 20, 2014 in Lunch, Salads, SIdes | 0 comments

I first discovered this salad from a friend of mine who picked it up at Whole Foods and shared it with me.  The mix of shredded kale and brussels sprouts with cheese, almonds and a light but flavorful dressing has become my new favorite salad.  I’ve been eating it regularly for lunches because its one of those salads that you can make a big batch of and it tastes better the next day so I’ve always got some on hand, and can easily take it to go.  When I spoke to one of the employees at Whole Foods he told me this is their most popular salad, and at $9.99 a pound I figured I’d give it a shot and make my own version and save a whole lot of money.

You can easily make this salad a full meal and add, hardboiled egg, fish, chicken, steak, chorizo, avocado. The options are endless get creative and see what you like best.
