Brussels Sprout Salad with Coconut Bacon

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Brussels sprouts are one of the vegetables that I’m extremely picky with… but raw Brussels sprouts with a salty crunchy topping does it for me! This is one recipe that I love and that I will eat those little green cabbages! Sweet, but salty. Bitter and savory. This salad has a little bit for everyone.

Whenever I make this, I always make double the recipe of the Coconut Bacon, just because I munch on it before and after eating the salad. ;  )
