This Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Kale Salad is kidney-friendly and low-sodium making it a great side dish or snack during the day. Whenever I'm working with Brussels sprouts I like to save the bits that fall off when I'm cutting the ends off. It's these pieces that I use for this shaved Brussel sprouts salad. This allows me to make two dishes out of Brussels sprouts and limit my waste.
In a large mixing bowl, add the shaved Brussels sprouts, chopped kale, and chopped almonds. Add the Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette and mix well ensuring there's a nice coat of dressing on everything. Set aside.
In the medium-sized mixing bow, combine the olive oil, diced sweet potatoes, and cinnamon. Toss to combine. Spread sweet potatoes evenly across a parchment paper lined baking pan and bake for 30 minutes or until browned evenly. Make sure to take a peak and stir things up around 15 minutes.
Remove sweet potatoes from oven and let cool completely. Once cool, add the sweet potatoes in with the remaining ingredients and mix well.
I like to purchase around 2 pounds of Brussels sprouts and while I’m cutting the ends off I collect all the bits that fall off onto my cutting board. This way I end up making my shaved Brussel sprouts and kale salad using these pieces while still being able to make a different dish out of the Brussels sprouts themselves.
