This pretty Caesar salad recipe is filled with lots of good-for-you things like ground flax seeds, Brussels sprouts and avocado.

I know what you’re thinking.

All my recipes involve these lovely lil’ Brussels sprouts.

Well, yes.

They do.

Most of them.

I am just loving these green balls of joy and steaming them is so simple.

I mean, why not toss them into every salad, right?

They’re all over the farmers markets and front and center in Whole Foods Market- so every time I walk in I just can’t seem to help myself to 3 lbs. or so.

I think I’m obsessed.

Is that a bad thing?

Well, maybe but I’m starting to think I could live off of avocados and Brussels sprouts over here.

Hehe.

Just teasing.

When tossed into a fun salad with fresh ginger, lemon juice and maca these Brussels sprouts become candy on my tongue.

Okay now I’m crazy.

There’s also a plethora of arugula in this salad- which adds a nice peppery touch – without the pepper, of course- as well as a yummy Caesar dressing, which makes it an instant winner.

Yep, that’s right: a Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Caesar Salad.

Whoever said Caesar salads had to be filled with anchovies and mayo?

Not me and you surely don’t wanna miss this recipe.

Bon App, my friends!
