Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad is a great salad recipe for those who hate brussel sprouts!  There is no bitter flavour, just yumminess!

Kale seems to be a leafy green that people either love or hate.  I love Kale and find that eating it is a good way to curb my appetite for more carb dense foods (like my Garlic Lemon Pasta with Roasted Shrimp).  Kale is great cooked but I happen to love the flavour of it raw.  I think this Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad might even be good enough to convert a few Kale haters.

I actually really hate brussel sprouts.  I don’t say that about a lot of food, especially vegetables, as I was raised to eat everything.  I just can’t get over the unpleasant bitter flavour they seem to have.  That is until I tried them raw in a salad.  I couldn’t believe how tasty they were!

Serve this Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad with your favourite dressing.  It is nice with a simple oil and vinegar dressing but I’ve even enjoyed a slightly naughtier version with a creamy poppy-seed dressing.

Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad

Ingredients:

1 bunch Tuscan Kale
4 cups finely shredded Brussels sprouts
1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Cranberries

Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad

Directions:

Wash the Kale and cut off the stems.

{Chiffonade the Kale}

Stack 3-4 Kale leaves on top of each other.

Roll the stack up tightly and hold it in front of you with one hand.

Starting at one end, make thin slices with your knife to create very slender strips.

To shred the Brussels sprouts, wash them then cut off the stems, halve them and using a very sharp knife, cut them into shreds like you would cabbage.

In a large bowl, toss together the shredded kale, shredded Brussels sprouts, almonds and cranberries.

Add as much dressing (of your choice) as desired and serve immediately.

  1. I hated brussel sprouts my whole life until recently when I finally tried them. You are right- they are delicious raw. I also like them cooked in a cheese sauce. I guess their smell was one thing that turned me off of them growing up. Well that and that I was an extremely picky eater lol.

  2. I am intrigued by the kale salad, never tired it really but would have to swap out the brussel sprouts for another veggie because it bugs my tummy. Love the imagery!

  3. I really want to try this recipe! I love both kale and brussel sprouts, but have never had brussel sprouts raw – what a great idea! I’ll definitely be making this!

  4. I love love love steamed brussel sprouts (especially the way my mom makes them with olive oil and wine vinegar). Never had them chopped and in a salad, but I’m totally curious about this great looking salad!

  5. I hate brussel sprouts too! However, I love kale raw and cooked. I am always up to trying new salads and this is one I have not seen yet! I will be giving it a try and it looks so good, I doubt I will have any complaints!
