Pomegranate, Avocado, & Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad

  1 rater(s)

Sustainable eating is all about shopping locally and enjoying the wide variety of seasonal produce. Many of the ingredients in this salad are fall produce items, including Brussels sprouts and pomegranates. The sweet and slightly tart flavor of the pomegranate arils beautifully contrast the bitterness of the shredded Brussels and other greens in this salad. It’s truly a protein-rich salad that also offers beneficial antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fat.

The key thing to remember about adding Brussels sprouts to salads is that you have to shave them or thinly slice them. Once you remove the ends and the wilted outer layers, you can thinly slice them with a knife or shave them on a mandoline. Another method for shredding Brussels sprouts is to add them to a food processor and pulse them a few times. Not only does shredding the Brussels make them more palatable, but it also adds nice texture to the salad.

Now, one addition to this salad that can be unusual if you don’t typically eat it is the shallot. This can be pungent, but that allium flavor you get from onions and shallots accentuates the other ingredients in the salad. To tame the intensity, you can soak the chopped shallot in cold water for about five to 10 minutes. Strain the water before adding the shallot to the salad bowl. It’s truly a unique salad and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
