A friendly reminder that daylight savings time is Sunday, November 1st at 2:00 AM. Time to fall back an hour!

Also just in time for fall, here is a hearty yet healthy salad to enjoy as the days grow darker and it seems harder to eat healthy, especially with all the leftover Halloween candy! This salad is crisp, sweet and salty.

Ingredients:

2 9oz Shaved or Shredded Brussels Sprouts
