Have I introduced you to my new favorite salad?
Okay, I know if you were under the age of say…fourteen, you probably clicked away from this post already. But as an adult, you should be okay with eating some foods you maybe avoided when you were a kid.
Brussel sprouts? Beets? If you would have asked me say…many years ago to try these, I would have given you a resounding NO!
But, I am an adult now. Putting them together in this salad with the addition of creamy feta, crunchy pine nuts and a delicious cider vinaigrette is nothing but pure genius! Delicious taste, hearty crunch and the sweet taste from the beets makes this salad my new favorite! Not to mention it is incredibly filling and good for you. It is honestly the best salad I have had in a long time! 🙂
