This colorful, Raw Brussels Sprout Salad with Oranges has it all – it’s crunchy, sweet, tangy, and packed with vegetables to keep you feeling full and nourished! And best of all, it comes together in just 15 minutes in one bowl. No cooking needed.
This Raw Brussels Sprout Salad was born out of pure necessity. Made up of whatever we had leftover in the fridge – which just so happened to be some Brussels sprouts + broccoli slaw leftover from stir fries earlier that week, and a few lonely oranges rolling around in the bottom bin.
Combined with some pantry staples (like maple syrup, extra virgin olive oil, salt, sunflower seeds) and a few other fresh leftovers (handfuls of blueberries and one last lemon) – it was a happy accident that we’ve now made on purpose dozens of times in our little kitchen!
I don’t know about you but I LOVE SALADS. Not in the sarcastic or pretending-to-love-salads kind of way when you’re trying to convince yourself to eat well. I mean that sometimes I legitimately CRAVE a big bowl of crunchy, raw vegetables tossed in a light, citrusy dressing. And will go out of my way to order a really excellent one in a restaurant instead of the burger + sweet potato fries that might normally be callin’ my name.
But let’s be real about one thing here – not all salads are created equal, right?…
