Meal prepping salads can seem bland and unsatisfying, especially if you are making multiple servings to eat throughout the week. However, it's probably because you haven't found the right salad that does the mid-day trick.
I have found that this Shredded Brussel Sprout Salad is the perfect big-batch option to make on Sundays and toss with different proteins all week. It is flavorful, sweet, savory, and fiber-filled! Your taste buds will thank you for the combination of salty from the almonds, sweet from the grapes, tangy from the lemon, and nutritious from the greens. You're welcome.
1 big bag of shredded brussel sprouts (should have about 4-5 servings)
1 head of broccoli
1/4 cup lightly salted almonds (my favorite are Trader Joe's dry roasted 50% less salt)
1/2 cup red grapes
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Steam the bag of brussel sprouts in the microwave for 3 minutes. Chop the head of broccoli and steam in a microwaveable bowl for 4 minutes once the brussel sprouts are done. Roughly chop the almonds and halve the grapes. Combine steamed greens with the rest of the ingredients and toss until well combined. Let the salad cool down before serving and storing in the fridge.
