Kale sprouts salad is a healthy, delicious, warm salad. It has crispy, crunchy sauteed kale sprouts, asparagus, crumbled bacon (because bacon makes everything better), ginger infused baby beets, and grated asiago cheese. Three words perfectly sum up this salad…
OH MY YUM!

Until I went to the Fresh Summit conference in New Orleans, I’d never even heard of kale sprouts. They’re a cross between kale and Brussels sprouts. I’m NOT a fan of Brussels sprouts, but I love kale, so when I received a complimentary container of them from Melissas Produce (A HUGE thank you to them for that), I decided to throw caution to the wind and give ’em a try. I have to say that my decision was a stellar one. Kale sprouts are not only delicious, they’re incredibly good for us, too!

FOOD FACTS – Kale Sprouts

  • Kale Sprouts are a colorful cross between Kale and Brussels Sprouts. The leafy vegetable is, in fact, not a sprout. Filled with powerful antioxidants and high amounts of dietary fiber and vitamins, Kale Sprouts are tender-crisp in texture with a sweet and complex flavor with undertones of nuts and pepper.
  • Though more developed than its micro green cousin, baby kale, it is much smaller. It’s harvested when the first leaves of the plant have developed around a tiny, compact central head. This small leafy delicacy has the same striking coloring as Red Russian Kale; silvery-green to blue-gray leaves with pronounced crimson veins.
