Recipe: Raw Brussels Sprouts Salad

Friday, March 01, 2013

You may think this vegetable is way too bitter to eat raw, but you'll be surprised by just how well this simple salad stands up next to your favorite subtle fish or chicken recipes. Brussels sprouts boast more phytonutrient power than most other vegetables. Packed with folate, vitamin k, fiber, B6, vitamin C, omega-3s, and tryptophan, they can be thought of as a multivitamin for your brain.

15 brussels sprouts

1 lemon, juiced

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

Freshly ground black pepper

Parmesan

MAKE IT: Chop the brussels sprouts into small pieces. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and pepper in a bowl to taste. Dress the brussels sprouts and then top with ample amounts of freshly grated Parmesan.

(Serves 4)
