This delicious combination is a unique way to enjoy a caesar salad. Shaved brussel sprouts and broccoli are two super foods that help mix up your leafy green routine.
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
1/2 medium shallot, sliced
1 Tablespoon Clearly Organic Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Pepper
1 lb brussel sprouts, halved and thinly sliced without stem
1/2 cup sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
2 peeled hard boiled eggs, grated
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 half of an avocado, sliced
1/2 cup Clearly Organic Caesar Salad Dressing
Lemon wedges (optional)
In a sauté pan toast pine nuts over medium heat with a dash of olive oil. Stir every 30 seconds to prevent burning. Toasting should only take about 4-5 minutes. Remove nuts from heat and transfer into a separate bowl, set aside. In the same sauté pan heat olive oil, shallots and broccoli over medium high heat. Add salt and pepper and sauté for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sautéed broccoli and shallots to a salad bowl. Using a chefs knife remove stems of brussel sprouts and thinly slice. Slice red pepper then add brussel sprouts and red pepper to the salad bowl with the broccoli. Add grated eggs, Parmesan cheese and avocado chunks. Top vegetables with Clearly Organic Caesar dressing and half of the toasted pine nuts. Toss ingredients together until evenly distributed. Just before serving top with remaining toasted pine nuts and squeeze a lemon wedge over the top of the salad if desired.
