Cranberry Kale and Brussels Salad

'Tis the season for cranberries galore!  In case you're not already cranberry-d out, this recipe is a quick one to whip up and makes a great side dish for lunches.  You could even add grilled chicken or shrimp to make it more of a meal.  This Cranberry Kale and Brussels Salad is a perfect combination of sweet and tart with a satisfying crunch.  And (BONUS) the kale and Brussels sprouts provide loads of Vitamin K* and C so you can feel good about this recipe, especially after a few too many holiday treats.
