Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of manganese, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, molybdenum, vitamin K, and folic acid.  These little gems are jam packed with nutrition, so I am always trying to find or come up with recipes that include them – thankfully, that’s easy to do with these yummies!  I saw the following pin that links to a creamy brussels sprouts spaghetti recipe.

The idea of noodles and brussels sprouts made me think of a yummy recipe that I have for a brussels sprouts and soba noodle salad with a sweet ginger dressing.  It’s one of my favorites, so I whipped it up for dinner the other night, and now I am going to share it with you!
