For a Holiday present, I received a subscription for a monthly gift box from graze.com, an online purveyor of healthy snacks that come in a great recyclable cardboard box, with 4 different snacking mixes sealed in their own nifty compartments. In my first graze.com gift box came a nice batch of "Booster Seeds", rich in Vitamin E and iron, that I used to make a healthy salad. Since I am always looking for quick and nutritious dishes that will tide me over until dinner, the idea came to combine the seeds with brussels sprouts to make this salad. I approximated the amounts of seeds to use just in case you are not getting a subscription to graze.com! —Bevi
