    Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

    It’s the beginning of the New Year, and we have all resolved to eat healthier. For many that means, more greens and more salads! I love to change this brussels sprouts salad up a bit by adding a few unusual suspects. Kale, broccoli slaw, cucumber, cilantro, artichoke hearts and avocado! A few incredibly healthy ingredients that give a traditional brussels sprouts salad more nutrients, texture, zest and body.

    By chopping the kale very finely, it blends in perfectly with the medley and sizes of the other ingredients without taking the salad over. It's a simple, fresh, healthy salad, but looks nice and festive enough to serve at to party. I plan on making this for my youngest son’s first birthday party next weekend! The kids may pick out their favorite veggies from the salad, but the adults will love it all together!

    Salad:

    10-12 oz. Brussels sprouts, shaved/shredded
    10oz bag julienne cut broccoli slaw
    2 packed cups kale finely chopped, stems removed
    4 green onions, chopped
    1 cup cilantro, chopped
    1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
    1 cup artichoke hearts, chopped
    1 cup pecans, chopped
    1 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
    1 large ripe avocado, chopped
    1/2 fresh lemon

    Dressing:

    1/3 cup hemp oil
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    1 1/2 tbsp raw honey 
    Salt & pepper

     

    Directions:

    Cut stems and discard coarse outer leaves of brussels, then shave thinly with a chef’s knife. Put shaved brussels in a large salad bowl. Add bag of broccoli slaw to bowl. Add finely chopped kale leaves, chopped green onions, cilantro cucumber, artichoke hearts, pecans and cranberries. Toss. Add avocado. Squeeze in lemon juice. Toss again gently.

    In a large liquid measuring cup, add hemp oil, apple cider vinegar, raw honey and salt and pepper. Stir with whisk or fork until combined. Drizzle over salad and toss until coated throughout. Serve right away. Enjoy!

     

    Salad & Guiltless Toast

    Salad + Guiltless! Big, crunchy, sweet and tangy kale and brussels sprouts salad with a slice of Guiltless 7 Seed Sandwich Bread toasted is the perfect healthy, light and simple dinner. Loaded with vitamins, nutrients, protein, fiber, and antioxidants from the salad AND bread! So yummy and feels so good, too!!

    Mason Jar Salad

    As a mom of two boys in diapers and a start-up business owner of Guiltless, feels like I barely have time for meal prep! Lots of very important, special things requiring my love and attention. But my health can't take back seat. If I can't take care of myself, I can't take care of anyone else, either. 

    Mason Jar Salads are an awesome way to eat healthy and make a few salads for yourself or others ahead of time! Without ever getting soggy! 

    The key is the order of ingredients and getting a large mason jar, with a wide mouth that makes packing and shaking it back out easy. A pint is a good size for one person for a smaller lunch, 1 quart for a larger lunch or dinner, and 2 quart jars or larger for a picnic or pot luck! 

    ✔start with dressing at the bottom to keep the ingredients from getting soggy. 
    ✔then your heaviest veggies 
    ✔protein
    ✔softer veggies & fruit for sweetness 
    ✔nuts for texture and crunch 
    ✔finish with your ️ greens on top! 
    Store in the fridge for several days. And just shake out into a bowl when you're ready to eat!
