Raw Brussels Sprouts Good Fortune Salad

I’m calling this amazing salad I made the other day “Good Fortune” for several good reasons. First, its’ star ingredient is one of the most powerful and under-appreciated cruciferous vegetable there is: brussels sprouts. Secondly, it incorporates brussels sprouts in their raw form, another under-appreciated thing. And thirdly, it has lentils that symbolize good fortune for the new year. 

I love to combine cooked foods with raw foods for maximum nutrition. If you’ve never tried raw brussels sprouts before, you’ve got to try this salad! Remember to shred or cut your brussels sprouts finely for maximum enjoyment. I like to chop raw brussels sprouts as garnish for cooked dishes and sandwiches… you could even make a coleslaw using them instead of traditional cabbage – the opportunities are endless!
