Avocado, Corn, Tomato and Brussels Sprout Salad

Avocado Corn Tomato Brussel Sprout Salad_2

As a kid I was not a fan of boiled Brussels sprouts. The flavor was lackluster and the texture was not appealing at all. But as an adult I’ve rediscovered Brussels sprouts and their versatility as an ingredient. They’re great roasted, steamed, and even the leaves make a great pizza topping. Here I decided to make a salad with some of my favorite ingredients and it was quite tasty. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Serving Size: 1/4 cup
