Ingredients

FOR THE SALAD

  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups Tuscan kale, stems removed and finely chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, shredded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 large avocado, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 cup candied walnuts or pecans, chopped

FOR THE DRESSING

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt + pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the vinaigrette. Combine all ingredients for the dressing in a small jar and shake well to combine. Season to taste (I like my vinaigrette to be somewhat strong in vinegar flavor. If you prefer a sweeter vinaigrette, you may wish to add additional maple syrup).
  • Combine salad ingredients. In a large bowl toss together the shredded Brussels sprouts, chopped kale, carrots, and pomegranate arils. Just before serving, add the avocado and candied pecans or walnuts.
  • Toss and serve. Drizzle salad with prepared vinaigrette and gently toss to combine. Best served immediately.
