I’m willing to bet that like me, several of you want to get healthier in 2015! While I’m usually good about staying away from refined sugar and carbs, the holidays are full of temptation and I had to partake in the goodies a few times =). To help get back on track, this Brussels Sprout & Spaghetti Squash Pesto Salad is full of healthy greens and zesty flavors. It’s a great alternative to salads made of leafy greens, such as kale or romaine.
If you have never made spaghetti squash before, it’s a lot of fun. Once roasted, the flesh becomes a stringy, spaghetti-like texture that can be easily scraped out. With the appearance of noodles, spaghetti squash is often used as a gluten-free alternative in many pasta recipes. In this salad, brussels sprouts are added to give a nice crunch and texture. If you are a lover of pesto (like me!), this dish will be right up your alley.
