Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad with Bacon and Parmesan

Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad with Bacon and Parmesan

I am so excited to share this salad with you today! I actually made this months ago, but managed to take absolutely terrible pictures of it. :) I wasn’t that upset though, because I was looking for an excuse to make it again! Plus, the timing worked out perfectly to share the recipe on the blog this week – this salad would be absolutely perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner! The base is a mix of kale and brussels sprouts, meaning it’s incredibly healthy. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste great. By the time you add in some slivered almonds, chopped bacon, and Parmesan cheese, you’ve got a salad that you can’t stop eating. I actually don’t usually like kale or brussels sprouts, and yet I absolutely loved this salad. Even Mike liked it! (Zeke, of course, took one tiny taste and made a face. But we all expected that.) I made a full batch of this on the weekend, and then ate some every day for lunch last week – yum! I hope you like this as much as we did. :)
