Who said salads have to be plain and boring? 
I love using thinly sliced Brussels sprouts and flavorful toppings to make this Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad then adding homemade Maple Vinaigrette to jazz it up!

 I love buying these 1lb bags of already trimmed Brussels Sprouts. 
What a time saver!
 Wash and dry the Brussels Sprouts then trim off the rough ends if needed.
Thinly slice the sprouts, shredding them, and add to a large bowl.
 I love adding nuts to my salads! 
Pecans are my favorite but almonds and walnuts are tasty too.
Add the nuts to a dry skillet and toast for a few minutes over medium heat.
Be sure to stir so they do not burn!
Cook two large eggs to your desired doneness.
 I like over easy or over medium. 
 For the Maple Vinaigrette whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. 
 Season to taste with salt and cracked black pepper. 
 I pour into a mason jar and serve.
 Pour desired amount on top of the salad.
Now add remaining topping ingredients except the eggs and seasoning.
Toss all ingredients together and mix well.
 
Portion onto two plates and add an egg on top of each.
Season with salt and pepper.
 Serve and enjoy this delicious meal!
