This salad has great texture – it’s nice and crunchy! 😛 I usually cook Brussels sprouts, but since they’re basically mini cabbages, they’re good raw in salads as well. Think coleslaw.

This salad is full of contrasting flavors – the slight bitterness of the Brussels sprouts, the sweet tartness of the pomegranate, the power of the Dijon mustard, and the sugary honey.

Pomegranates are definitely my favorite fall fruit. I was nearly beside myself with excitement when I caught my first glimpse of them earlier this season (and posted it in an Instagram story of course). I’m not really big into fruit, but I do get giddy over pomegranates and watermelon.

Pomegranate arils are like the prettiest little jewels. I kind of wish I could include them in every food photo. It takes a little patience to de-seed (is that a word?) a pomegranate, but it’s actually quite relaxing if you’re not in a rush.

You just cut it into quarters and then remove the arils by hand, attempting not to splatter the pretty red juice all over your kitchen. You can also do it the way this person does in their video if you want to have some fun. 😛

This pomegranate Brussels sprouts salad is also an easy way to please the herbivores in your life if they like this sort of thing. 😉 I will apologize to my sister in advance for not making this for her.

I hope you enjoy this healthy Brussels sprouts recipe!

Your salad is definitely stand out for quality of presentation and easiness of preparation. I am a big salad lover as well. Not all my salads are light and healthy:-( but I still love them as they are yummy. I made a Potato Christmas salad a couple of months ago:
