Healthy Brussel Sprouts Salad with Shallot Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe.  Shaved Brussels sprouts recipe salad with kale, pomegranate and pecans to boost the nutrition a bit. I top the salad with a shallot vinaigrette dressing that is so refreshing, fresh and tangy. It’s the perfect salad dressing for just about any vegetable, especially greens like these Brussels sprouts.  Brussels sprouts are a good source of Vitamin C, folate, fiber, antioxidants, protein, iron and potassium.  Pretty impressive for boosting your overall health.

This brussel sprouts salad is absolutely packed with nutrients that will do wonders for your skin, too.  When people think of the benefits of foods they often think about the heart, digestive system, muscles bones and other internal organs, but not their skin.  I oftentimes do  the same, it’s only natural.  Similarly if you ask someone how well they treat their skin they’ll likely only think of sunblock, moisturizers and other creams.  Be mindful that the food you eat is very much correlated to the healthiness for all parts of your body, inside and out.  Tomatoes, nuts and salmon are foods that do wonders for the whole body, including the skin.  Some foods that benefit the skin may however surprise you, like chocolate.

    This sounds like a power packed salad. I personally don’t care for brussel sprouts so I would have to find a substitute.

    Brussels Sprouts have always been one food I’ve not been able to eat. I just don’t like the taste. Maybe shredding it up and mixing with other stuff might be the answer.
