You will hug me for this recipe only because it is so easy and also delicious. I’m hoping you have a Trader Joe’s nearby. First off, you’ll need a bag of pre chopped kale/Brussels sprout mix which I’ve seen at Costco and Trader Joe’s. These are wonderful because everything is pre-washed and chopped. I’m a believer that I’ll eat more salads if this step is taken care of for me.
Add to that crisp bacon, fresh parmesan cheese, cranberries, pecans, and a pear vinaigrette? Pretty amazing.
- 1 bag “Cruciferous Crunch” as it’s called at Trader Joe’s
- 1 12-16 oz. package of bacon, cooked until crispy and cooled
- 1 c. dried cranberries
- 1 c. fresh grated parmesan cheese
- 1 c. chopped pecans
- To taste, Pear Champagne Vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s
Mix ingredients and dress. I like to dress about 15 minutes before I eat this because the greens are a little tough and pre-dressing makes it perfect by meal time.
