Chopped Super Foods Salad with Citrus Dressing

Super Foods Salad

It’s no secret that I LOVE salads.  They are my favorite lunches.  They are simple, filling, nutritious, and delicious; does a lunch get any better than that?  I tend to get into salad ruts, eating the same salad for weeks at a time, eventually I get tired of it and then move onto the next salad; and I think I have just found a new favorite…This Chopped Super Foods Salad with Citrus Dressing.  It is so dang tasty!

Super Foods Salad

I never realized that I liked raw brussel sprouts until I chopped them up and put them in a salad.  I love it!  If you haven’t tried it, don’t judge until you do.  It really is yummy!  This particular salad is a melting pot of cruciferous veggies including kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli slaw.  When you top all those awesome veggies with pecans, apples, and craisins you create a beautiful salad bursting with nutritional goodness!  As if that wasn’t enough, you then top the salad with a sweet, tangy, and slightly savory citrus dressing.  It just seems to compliment all of the flavors perfectly.  It’s the perfect salad to bring to a get together, or enjoy for a healthy lunch!
