Brussels sprouts salad

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, but I don’t think of myself as a food blogger. I love food and like to share about it, but I don’t think you can count on me for recipes. I’m the girl that reads a recipe once to get an idea and then just learns to wing it after that. By doing this, I’ve come up with some pretty cool things… but can never tell you how to replicate it. Oops.

I will always try to share cool combos that I come up with, or funky ideas that I try though!

Heres one of my favorite salads that I’ve been making lately. It is hard to mess up, so here is my laid back recipe (more like list of ingredients?) for my salad.

I apologize for the less-than-attractive iPhone photos:

Ingredients:

Brussels (1 bag)
Roasted Almonds (a hefty handful)
Bacon (3 or 4 slices)
Olive oil (a drizzle)
Apple cider vinegar (3 or 4 tbs)
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Hemp seeds (this time)

Sorry! But thats basically how I cook..

Chop up bacon and throw into a pan to sauté until crispy.

While thats simmering coarsely chop up the brussels.IMG_2200

Coarsely chop the almonds and add them to a bowl with the chopped brussels. Add the crisped bacon (I like to add the fat too instead of olive oil sometimes). I also added a packet of hemp seeds, which I will probably continue to do in the future.

  1. Hi, Katie! I just discovered your blog after googling for roasted chickpea recipes, and I’ll be adding your blog to my list of favorites. :) This salad looks delicious!! Question…are those just fresh, raw brussel sprouts? Frozen? I had to ask, as I’ve never eaten them raw before…

    1. Hey Sarah! Thanks for visiting, Im glad you found me! This salad is so simple to make, and yes the brussels are raw! I don’t buy them frozen, just fresh in my produce section. When they are raw they have a great crunch. I hope you try it out… and thanks for adding me to your list, please stay in touch!
      Let me know if you try the salad :)
