Shaved Brussel Sprout & Kale Salad

This salad is just perfection. I had never had a salad where raw Brussel sprouts were the main base ingredient until a few weeks ago. I instantly fell in love with the idea and had to create  my own. This salad is deliciously crunchy, super healthy & definitely satisfying. The addition of craisins & pumpkin seeds really add a wintery taste and give an extra boost to the salads already diverse texture. Also, add juicy apple pieces to a salad and I am sold. The flavors work so well together – it will leave you full but wanting more! It is a great addition to anyone’s healthy Eating Plan for the new year as Brussel sprouts are an excellent source of protein, iron and potassium as well as Kale being super high in fiber, so there is no excuse! Get chopping!
