Ingredients

For the salad

  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts trimmed, finely grated or shredded
  • 6 slices bacon nitrate and sugar free for Whole30 (ButcherBox has great quality bacon)
  • 3 cups kale chopped
  • ¼ cup red onions

For the dressing

Instructions

FOR THE DRESSING

  • Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small mason jar. Close with the lid and shake well. Set aside.

FOR THE SALAD

  • First, add Brussels sprouts in a food processor with the slicing attachment and pulse until the Brussels sprouts are thinly sliced. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a mandolin (I love this one.) or a very sharp knife.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Place the shredded Brussels sprouts, kale and onion in a large bowl. Drizzle the salad with the dressing and toss well.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Top with bacon before serving.

Notes

If you don't like to eat raw kale or Brussels sprouts you can sauté them for 3-5 minutes in the same skillet you use to cook the bacon. Use some of the bacon fat (about 1 tablespoon) to sauté them.
