I love salads with kale and brussel sprouts. And this Sliced Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad
did not disappoint. The almonds gave it a nice crunch and I threw lives in there as I love them.
4 cups Lacinato kale, loosely packed
4 cups Brussels sprouts, loosely packed
½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon shallots, chopped
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Maple syrup
Sea salt and pepper to taste
*NOTE: If you eat dairy, sprinkle with Pecorino cheese.
Remove stems from kale. Roll leaves, and then slice into thin strips. Half Brussels sprouts, discard ends, then finely grate or shred with a knife into thin slices. Assemble kale and Brussels sprouts into a large bowl.
For the dressing, mix together lemon juice, Dijon mustard, shallots, lemon zest and maple syrup. Whisk until well combined. Slowly add in olive oil and mix. Season with salt & pepper. Drizzle dressing over kale & Brussels sprouts. Toss to coat. Add sliced almonds and mix.
