Healthy Eating: Pomegranate, Avocado, and Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad

Pomegranate, Avocado, and Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad

Shredded Brussels sprouts are great for salads.  We love this combination with pomegranate seeds and navel orange sections. Be sure to toss the salad gently so that the pieces of orange and avocado keep their shape. This delicious salad works as  a stand alone meal or as a side dish with meats or chicken.   At 142 calories per 1 cup serving, this salad is also a winner in the calorie lineup too.
