Raise your hands if you are looking for a great salad that even pickiest eaters will eat. 

Salads are great like this Broccoli Salad, the Corn Salad, my Pea Salad, or the Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

But they must be seriously delicious. Who will eat a boring or bland salad? I honestly won’t even eat a bite.

What makes this Brussels Sprouts Salad stand out

A great texture: Let’s be real friends, I’m not a big fan of raw vegetables. Many recipes calls for shaved Brussels Sprouts. I find that crispy fried Brussels Sprouts are even more delicious. My secret: fry them in olive oil, so good.

The sweet things: grapes, apples and brown sugar for the dressing are amazing, because it has just the right amount of sweetness.

Hearty stuff: I don’t want to miss out on  classic flavors so I add straight to the bowl vegan bacon and cheddar.

Step by step pictures make everything so easy to follow, true you get the best result, yum.
