Brussels Sprouts and Kale Salad with Maple Mustard Vinaigrette

January 26, 2017


Author Notes: For lovers of brassica salads, here's another one. This is one of my favorite winter salads. I think that even a Brussels sprout hater could get behind this shaved Brussels sprout and kale salad with maple-mustard dressing. I like this just the way it is but you could add bacon or chicken or both and make it more of a meal. It also travels well. And, because it is best eaten at room temperature, it’s a great option for those times when you have to bring something. Michelle Barry
