I started making this raw brussel sprout salad when I started my love affair with brussel sprouts. I used to hear so many people say they didn’t like them, only to find out they had only had them boiled whole. YUCK. This here is not only an awesome salad, but is Conscious Cleanse friendly! If you wanted it more as a snack, or if you are a vegetarian, just remove the chicken and add some nuts. If you are not cleansing, add some blue cheese!
1 lb of brussel sprouts
1/2 cup radicchio, sliced thin
Few leaves basil, chopped
Handful olives for garnish
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1. The prep of the brussel sprouts takes the longest, but is so worth it. Cut of the very bottom, then cut in half lengthwise. Place the flat side down and slice as thin as you can! Repeat with every sprout. Some of the not so good outer leaves will fall off when you cut the bottom off, thats fine.
2. Slice up some radicchio, mix basil in with brussels in a large bowl.
3. Mix the rest of the ingredients together. Pour some over the salad, mix and see how much more you need, saving some dressing for another use.
Now you have an awesome salad! Top with olives and some pieces of Roasted Chicken for a great lunch on the go.
