Brussels Sprouts Salad

Brussels sprouts are cold weather veggies that offer seasonal benefits too. With two and a half times the daily requirement of vitamin K in just one cup, they also contain more than a day’s requirement of vitamin C, which is so important for your immunity to prevent colds and flu. They’re also high in fiber for a healthy digestive tract. 

While I love them sautéed and roasted, this salad is something that I enjoy serving as an alternative to a basic green one. It’s wonderful for lunch or as a side dish to any meal you dish up this winter.

I use ALOHA Daily Good Greens powder in the dressing for a nutritional boost; they add a savory flavor to the dressing and are delicious. This is a variation on a recipe from my new book, Discover Your Nutritional Style.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, cider vinegar, honey, sea salt, and Daily Good Greens. Pour the dressing over the brussels sprouts mixture and toss until all the ingredients are well coated. Serve immediately or let sit for 20 minutes to allow flavors to meld.
