Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This salad is the perfect summer side. Raw brussels sprouts are so delicious and have a wonderful texture to boot. They are also chockful of nutrition - packed with fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin K, and manganese! Sunflower seeds are another great way to get fiber plus healthy fats and a little bit of protein. Unsaturated fat, often found in nuts and seeds, are very important to maintaining healthy brain function.
