The Best Greens And Brussels Sprout Salad

First and foremost, enjoy these healthy greens and Brussels sprout salad with chicken thighs in a skilletHoney-Beer Braised BBQ Baby Back Ribs or fish.  Moreover, brussels sprouts are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet.  In addition, seasonal flavor and fresh and crisp vegetables are paramount when it comes to any salad, and this recipe nails all points with a blend of hearty greens, Brussels Sprouts, a simple homemade vinaigrette, and a nutty crunch.

I highly recommend trying a green salad with finely shaved Brussels sprouts mixed in.  The sprouts add a nice crunch and unique flavor to the mix.  A tangy vinaigrette, crispy bacon bits, and toasted almonds also add great salad additions.  It's a light and refreshing option that will still leave you feeling satisfied.  I never thought I would enjoy Brussels sprouts so much, but this salad has converted me!

There are many great options to serve with salad! Some ideas include grilled chicken, shrimp skewers, roasted vegetables, quinoa salad, or a hearty soup. You can add nuts, seeds, or cheese for extra flavor and texture. Enjoy your meal!

Also, for a hardy breakfast, have scrambled eggs and bacon.  However, try our homemade cinnamon roll recipe if you feel like cheating or treating yourself and your family.
