Shredded Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad

This shredded kale and brussels sprout salad topped with sliced toasted almonds and fresh parmesan cheese is the perfect salad to kick start healthy eating habits for 2014! I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about a big bowl of greens. I love the crunchy texture of the ingredients and sweet and tangy lemon dressing.
