Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

This Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad is the great equalizer, mind-changer, and lunch brightener. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a “salad person” (or even a Brussels sprouts person or a kale person). The balanced combination of tasty toppings like nuts, dried cherries, and Parmesan, along with a helpful boost from a zippy, lightly sweet maple vinaigrette, are here to win you over, and you’ll be happy with the victory indeed.

Think you don’t like kale in any circumstance, regardless of the toppings or dressing? WELL, thanks to an easy but game-changing prep tip, you’ll be delighted to find yourself enjoying this salad’s roaringly “green” ingredients too.

Unlike chewy or even bitter kale and Brussels sprouts salads you’ve had before, the vegetables here are mild and tender. The transformation comes from massaging the kale and thinly slicing the Brussels sprouts. It’s a minor step that makes all the difference. You’ll want to pile both onto your fork!

To the existing kale and Brussels sprouts fans, this salad recipe will exceed your best and your wisest expectations. It’s yummy, not dry (and not overdressed), with a splendid combination of textures and flavors.

As with any salad (save for perhaps a kale Brussels sprout salad mix), this recipe does require some up-front prep work, but it can last for days in the refrigerator. The time you spend making it will be rewarded over and over as you enjoy the fruits of your labor throughout the week.

In addition to being a dynamite meal-prep recipe, this kale and Brussels sprouts salad is a looker. At a future time, I know it’s going to be a go-to of mine for potlucks and dinner parties, as it can be made well in advance and tastes excellent at room temperature. (more…)
