For starters, there’s no need to clear the kitchen while Brussels sprouts, one of the fragrant members of the Brassica plant genus, boil away. Raw, thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, apples, pecans, and pomegranate seeds form the heart of the salad. And what a sweet, crunchy, nutty, tart, absolutely delicious heart it is — one that just happens to be loaded with fiber, nourishing fats, and nutrients (including the cancer-fighting compounds that the Brassica family is famous for).
