Happy New Year! This time of year, the diet industry tells us we have to drink 3 smoothies per day, take a handful of supplements and spend all day at the gym to work off those yummy holiday meals we shared with family. The truth is, your body is a well-oiled natural detox machine! Feeding it veggies, especially cruciferous ones like brussel sprouts, can even give our liver a helpful boost! Enjoy this winter veggies salad and kick those detox supplements and diet plans to the curb.

Instructions
  1. Wash and pound out chicken breast until approx. ½ its original thickness. Add ½ tsp olive oil to skillet and sautee chicken until done. When done, slice into thin strips.
  2. Wash and trim brussel sprouts. Carefully slice brussel sprouts thinly using a very sharp knife or a mandolin, shred sprouts into very thin slices.
  3. Chop nuts. Heat another skillet over medium heat and toast your desired nuts until fragrant, about 2-2 minutes. Be careful not to burn!
  4. Combine mustard, syrup, vinegar, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. This works well in a mason jar so you can shake to combine the vinegar and oil.
  5. Chop apple and assemble salad in a large bowl. Drizzle on dressing and serve topped with chicken strips.
