  1. Made it with homemade broccoli sprouts and family enjoyed. I had everything on hand except pomegranate but used frozen pomegranate seeds instead (quick hack - just defrosted 1/2 cup at room temperature). This salad has a ton of powerful nutritious ingredients. Used a bit of mustard powder as well to enhance nutrition. I also added a bit of himalayan salt. Thank you!

  2. I can actually visualize what this salad will taste like - marvelous. Will make and let you know as I only have frozen brussel sprouts but won't be able to go to the stores before Friday. Also don't have raspberry vinegar but have raspberries and pomegranates too. Will pummel raspberries into vinegar and add honey, using frozen brussel sprouts with the warm salad dressing.

    • Sounds awesome, Margaret. Thank you for sharing that with us.
