Autumn Brussels Leaf Salad | Peaceful Dumpling

As the winter holidays approach, bright, leafy salad dishes seem to get stored away with the swimsuits and SPF. Caesar salads are swapped
for sweet potato bakes, and strawberry poppy switches to cranberry sauce. This harvest salad keeps the crisp, summer crunch, while
adding creamy, warm elements of fall. Resting on a warm bed of parsnip puree, this autumn Brussels sprout leaf salad is perfect for those of you who want your cable knit sweaters and salads, too.
