Recipe: Brussel Sprout + Arugula Salad



It's been a long while since I've posted any recipes on the 
blog! Due to my current state, most of the time when I cook something 
I can't shove it in my mouth fast enough for obvious reasons :). Like THIS
dish I made which I will definitely make again for the blog. Anywho, here is a salad
that we eat pretty regularly in my house and it's honestly so simple and delish!
I love a good texture with my food and this definitely has it….

Ingredients needed:
1 bag of arugula
8-10 brussels sprouts, uncooked and sliced
sliced almonds
dried cranberries

Dressing:
Olive Oil
Seasoned Rice Vingear or Red Wine Vinegar 
Salt to taste
Garlic Powder

Cut ends of brussel sprouts and peel off outer layers.  Then slice in half and begin to cut, shredding the brussel sprout. Repeat for all. Combine shredded brussel sprouts and arugula in bowl and add almonds and cranberries to liking. As far as the dressing goes, these have been the 4 key ingredients to all salads that I ate growing up and I still use this formula to this day. Since I don't use measurements I just eyeball the olive oil and vinegar depending on how much salad there is. Then just add salt and garlic powder to taste.  Easy as that!

Happy Monday!
