Brussels Sprouts & Kale Saute Recipe

In an effort to add more greens to our meals, I created this dish—and my kids eat it up. The crispy salami is the "hook." —Jennifer Mcnabb, Brentwood, Tennessee
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced hard salami, cut into 1/4-inch strips
