We love the traditional foods of the holidays…like Brussels Sprouts! But sometimes we just want to “shake it up”. This recipe takes one of our favorite veggies and uses it in a creative and beautiful salad. This crisp and crunchy full-of-flavor salad can convince even the sprouts haters to convert!
Parsley adds a bright green flavor to this salad, enhancing its fresh, lively taste. It also is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. When consumed regularly, it can combat the onset of many disorders. The vitamin C and vitamin A found in it serve to strengthen the body’s immune system. It is also an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K. So instead of just salt and pepper, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Parsley on your meal for a tasty healthy change.
