  • Salad bowl


  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp light mayo
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 1/4 tsp salt, plus more for seasoning
  • black pepper for seasoning
  • 4 cups roughly chopped packed kale, chopped finely
  • 1 cup shaved brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup honey-roasted slivered almonds I use Trader Joe's
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • Homemade croutons (optional) See link for recipe below


  • In the bottom of a medium-sized salad bowl, add red wine vinegar, lemon juice, mayo, mustard, garlic and salt. Whisk to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  • Add kale, Brussels sprouts, cheese, almonds and cranberries to the bowl. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with homemade croutons if using. 


This feeds two people as a side salad, one for an entree. Can also easily be double to feed 4-6!
To make it even easier, you can definitely use your favorite store-bought vinaigrette.
