Done with heavy holiday desserts? It’s time to lighten up your diet with this Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Endive Slaw with Champagne Vinaigrette.

Out go the cookies, cakes and chocolate and in come the salads, vegetables and green juices. It’s January, which means everyone is in that Get-Fit mindset and wants to eat healthy. #SundaySupper knew after last week’s round up of extremely rich and decadent recipes that you’d all probably be craving some good, nutritious and delicious dishes to help you start off the new year on a lighter foot. Thanks to TR of Gluten Free Crumbley for hosting!

Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Endive Slaw with Champagne Vinaigrette

As much as I enjoy eating out and splurging on my favorite desserts, I do love having a healthy home-cooked meal — especially one that includes some of my favorite veggies. Brussels Sprouts became a staple part of my diet in 2014, and they aren’t going anywhere. My latest Food Network Magazine had a whole section on Brussels Sprouts side dishes, each sounding tastier than the last. One that caught my eye was the Damaris Phillips’ Brussels Sprouts Slaw. Damaris was one of the winners of Next Food Network Star and is this absolutely adorable chef from the South who now has a show “Southern At Heart.” Her slaw sounded SO delicious, but I didn’t have all of the same ingredients she used on hand. So what? I improvised. What I liked best was the dressing she made, a simple champagne vinaigrette. I swapped the mayo for fat free Greek yogurt — because you guys know how much I hate mayonnaise — and whipped up the lighter and healthier version of the dressing. My Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Endive Slaw with Champagne Vinaigrette combines shredded Brussels sprouts with sliced endive, cranberries and pumpkin seeds and made for one absolutely beautiful dish. It was bursting with bright flavors, the colors popped right off the plate, and there wasn’t even one bite left at the end of the night.

This Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Endive Slaw with Champagne Vinaigrette was very easy to put together. It’s light and refreshing, and you can really feel good about eating it because there are nothing but delicious, healthy ingredients on your plate!
