Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Salad


This flavorful bacon and brussels sprouts salad is both healthy and decadent. It’s sweet, salty and has great texture – a little crunch and a little chew! It’s light and yet filling – it’s what I like to call a satisfying salad.

I am in love with this bacon and shredded Brussels sprouts salad. It’s naturally sweet, deliciously salty and perfectly crunchy. It’s made with a few strips of nitrate-free and sugar-free bacon, pumpkin seeds, toasted walnuts, naturally sweet dried fruit and Brussels sprouts. I used chopped apricots for my dried fruit and love the flavor it adds to this salad, but you can use cranberries, raisins or whatever you want. Once you assemble your salad, drizzle it with a super simple balsamic vinaigrette!

For this weeks meal plan, you’ll find delicious stews and soups, a power salad, and some skillet recipes (one of which calls for Brussels sprouts!). You can find many of the ingredients available at ALDI. I love that they are always expanding their organic, gluten-free, and healthy options – plus they’re easy on your wallet.
