Brussels sprouts and clementines? What? 

This salad trades your typical salad base with a bed of shredded Brussels sprouts, adding a filling, crunchy, bitter texture that’s balanced out with – yes, you read the recipe name correctly – clementines.

What makes this salad particularly nutritious is its use of high-fiber vegetables and healthy fats, creating a satiating lunch or dinner that will keep you full and energized.

TIP: The sesame oil dressing can be made up to two days in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container or jar.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, damaged outer leaves discarded, ends trimmed and shredded using a food processor (TIP:When processing Brussels sprouts, the "S"-shaped blade tends to work better than the shredding disk.)
