Sweet Balsamic Sprout Salad

Here is a winner for Thanksgiving; healthy, delicious, and so easy. Do you always use store-bought dressing? Growing up in Spain, we didn’t even have “dressing.” Here, we make our own. DIY was never easier.

 

You will need…

  1. Sprouts
  2. Grapes, thin-sliced apples, raisins, or some other dried fruit
  3. Pecans or walnuts, chopped
  4. Sea salt
  5. Drizzle of raw honey, if desired
  6. Balsamic vinegar
  7. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (organic and cold pressed, of course!

Directions:

Break up the sprouts if needed. They should be in bite size “clumps” if they are not completely separated, otherwise people will have to cute their salad, which is a little odd. Add all ingredients to serving bowl in the order above, toss gently but completely, and serve. Notice I didn’t mention amounts? I dont’ know how many people you will be serving! Also, a little light on the vinegar, heavy on the salt, etc. should be according to your taste. If the ratio for sprouts seems too chewy, add more fruit and nuts.

Enjoy your deliciously healthy, superfood salad which includes protein, probiotics, minerals, and healthy fat! Even small portion does good to every function of the body.

Be healthy, be blessed, be thankful.

Cheers,

Western Woman
