Kale + Brussels SproutĀ "Slaw"

January 20, 2014


Author Notes: This dish is truly divine. Brussels sprouts and kale are two of my favorite veggies, and this wholesome "slaw" is a creative way to showcase both in a totally naturally way. Both of these veggies, in their raw form, work perfectly to create a healthy alternative to coleslaw. The currants and almonds add the perfect sweetness and crunch. I love this salad as a main or a side and it's a great recipe to double because it is even more delicious the next day. So many anti-oxidents, so little time!Weekday Gourmet
