The Perfect Summer Salad For All Those Salad Lovers And Almost Salad Lovers. Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad With Dates, Apples And Topped With A Balsamic Vinaigrette

It’s HOT and everyone is hungry! Look no further than my amazing Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad. I know what you are thinking, roasting veggies on a hot summer day is nuts!! I literally only cook ( heat on ) in the morning during hot summer days. The wonderful part about creating this delish dish is that I used my air-fryer. For those that are looking for great use of an air-fryer, this is definitely one of them. Tossing the brussel sprout in the air fryer for under 11 min will keep your home cool during those rising temps. Prepping and creating this dish will take 20 minutes, making this dish a must for a family dinner or get-togethers. Play around with creating this salad, substituting apples for another crunchy fruit you enjoy or dates for perhaps cranberries. Stay cool this summer and ridiculously fed, Check! Happy creating and enjoy.
