If you love healthy, yet yummy food, I think you will love this Brussel Sprout Salad recipe! I think it is the best Brussel sprout salad recipe I’ve ever had! It is simple and oh so delicious! There is a charming restaurant in the cute downtown by our new house, that makes this salad. I order it every time we go! Since I love it so much, I decided to try to recreate it at home. Matt thinks it is better than the restaurant’s! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Saute the shaved Brussel sprouts in a little butter just until they are tender. Season with salt and pepper! They cook up in just a few minutes and are so delicious. They look their bitter taster when they are prepared this way.
I love butternut squash! This recipe sings with it included! You can use frozen butternut squash, if it isn’t in season. Drizzle it with a little olive oil and some salt and pepper and bake for about 20minutes on 350 degrees or according to the package directions.
For the chicken, roast it, bake it or BBQ it! If you’re short on time, use precooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken instead.
The quinoa in this recipe is very subtle. It just adds more nutrition and a little texture. Again, if you’re short on time, I love using Trader Joe’s frozen quinoa, you just warm it up in the microwave!
Toss all the prepared ingredients in a bowl and top with some sunflower seeds and a little parmesan cheese! It is so, so yummy! Even if you don’t like Brussel sprouts, give this recipe a try, I think you just might love it!
