Vegan Kale & Brussel Sprouts Salad Recipe
- 2 cups kale greens rinsed and chopped
- 1 cup fresh brussel sprouts thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries
- 1/2 cup pecans crushed or broken
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
Combine the vinegar, syrup and spices in a small bowl with a whisk (or a fork) and set them aside.
The pecans can be crushed with a rolling pin in a Ziploc bag for a fine crush, or broken up by hand to make larger pieces. You can also find bags of crushed pecans in the baking section at the grocery store.
In a larger bowl, gently toss the salad ingredients.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.
