Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

If there are two things that I can never seem to get enough of, it is kale and brussels sprouts!  I consume them in large amounts almost every day.  In fact it’s rare that a day goes by that I don’t have one or the other!

Actually, when I was throwing this salad together it didn’t have brussels sprouts in them, but when I realized I had just bought a Costco sized bag of them, I thought, “why not!”  Everything is better with brussels.. right??!  (The hubs is so rolling his eyes as he reads this!)

You’ll have to forgive me but I didn’t really do a whole lot of measuring for parts of this!  Bottom line is that you can change this around to make this to your liking!

Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad
Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Side/Main Meal
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3-5
Wonderful and hearty salad that will keep in the fridge for a few days
  • 1 bunch of organic kale
  • ⅓ cup of pomegranate seeds (or you can substitute with dried cranberries)
  • ⅓ cup of raw or toasted pecans or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 heaping cup of thinly sliced brussels sprouts
  • For the Dressing
  • 2 Tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  1. Mix together all the ingredients of your dressing and set aside
  2. Tear the ribs from the kale into small piece and mix with the sliced brussels sprouts.
  3. Add the dressing and allow the salad to "sit" for about 25 minutes
  4. Toss at least 2-3 times while it sits to ensure that salad is coated evenly.
  5. Top with pomegranate seeds and pecans and toss again.

I hope you enjoy!  I wanted to get this post out today before the holidays!  I’ll be back on Thursday with more winners to announce!

Do you have any winter food addictions?  Are you a kale or brussels sprouts fan or do you love them both equally?

  1. Yum.
    It’s all about toasting the nuts/seeds, I’ve found out!
    I have shredded brussels sprouts waiting to be used! Typically roast them, but I’m going to make your yummy salad!
