Apple, Fig & Brussels Sprouts Salad

Apple, Fig & Brussels Sprouts Salad

1 Review
From: EatingWell Magazine, November/December 2016

Salad dressing made from sweet and mellow white balsamic vinegar balances out the assertive greens and Brussels sprouts in this healthy winter salad. If you have one handy, a small mandoline makes it easy to slice the Brussels and apple. To make it a dinner salad, top with shrimp or chicken.
