LIST OF INGREDIENTS
BRUSSELS SPROUTS: Brussels sprouts are the star of the show here, but don’t be alarmed if they’re not your thing. These Brussels are chopped finely and then topped with a myriad of flavors and toppings.
BACON: Extra crispy bacon is my favorite salad topping. It adds a crispy texture and hearty flavor. Here is my favorite bacon! Make sure bacon is sugar free for Whole30.
APPLE: Just one sliced apple adds natural sweetness and crunch.
PECANS AND ALMONDS: Goodbye croutons! Pecans and sliced almonds act as the perfect garnish.
DRIED CRANBERRIES: Dried cranberries add the right amount of sweetness. Be sure to use sugar free for Whole30.
DRESSING: This apple cider vinaigrette is incredibly easy. It’s sweet and savory perfection!
