Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with EPIC lemon dressing

Updated: Dec 19, 2020

Brussels sprouts, like their brethren (think cauliflower, kale, broccoli, cabbage, and collard greens) are SO good for you. Indeed, they are one of the most nutrient dense foods you can eat. One cup exceeds your daily needs for vitamin C and vitamin K (good for bones), with a whole cocktail of phytochemicals and antioxidants linked to minimizing risk for diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, all at just 38 little calories. The fact that the Brussels in this salad are served raw rather than cooked may have its upsides too, since some of its cancer-fighting compounds (along with certain vitamins) lose their potency when heated. AND just know you're going to want to make this dressing ALL the time.
