Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Pear, Cranberries, and Vegan Parmesan

brussel sprouts salad

I love fresh salads for lunch or sides, and frankly the bigger the better. I wanted a little bit of everything in here; crunch, sweetness, cheesiness, and something that can be prepared ahead of time and thrown together later. I think we all typically boil or roast brussels sprouts, but have you ever had these amazing little greens raw? They have a similar texture to shredded cabbage, but much more flavorful. Shaved Brussels sprouts, chewy dried cranberries, toasted almonds, fresh pear, and vegan Parmesan cheese make this salad irresistible.

Quinoa and Cranberry Salad

Quinoa is gluten free and a great source of protein. One cup of quinoa boasts 8 grams of protein. To put that into perspective, the average woman requires about 46 grams of protein per day. It has definitely become a very popular grain to everyone, being low in fat and high in nutrients, it is replacing the traditional rice or couscous in many recipes. Contributed from Sophia Zergiotis’ blog Love and Lentils more→
