No, you do not need to adjust the color on your screen. That really is a purple salad. All natural, too. Did you know that many of our vegetables can be found in the purple form – NATURALLY? From potatoes to carrots, asparagus to cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts to artichokes, all of these vegetables, and more, can be found in the color purple.

Purple produce is not just a pretty face. These fruits and vegetables are jam packed with antioxidants.

JAM PACKED.

There is tremendous research showing evidence that these anthocyanins, the magical substance that provide the vibrant purple pigment, reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and Parkinson’s.

Have I got your attention now?

Purple Brussels Sprouts for The Purple Salad by FamilySpice.com

After receiving my purple care-package from Frieda’s Produce, I immediately fell in love with these stunning purple Brussels sprouts.

I usually roast my sprouts, but this time I decided to eat these gorgeous sprouts raw. Yes, they are delicious raw and in a salad. I studded my salad with purple cauliflower, blood oranges, kalamata olives and goat cheese crumbles – a great find from Trader Joe’s.

  1. Purple is pretty! I don’t eat all that many purple foods (eggplant is probably the most common for me), but I love color, so I should play with these neat foods more often. Really inspiring post — thanks.

  2. I’ve never seen purple sprouts here but we often find purple cauliflower. I love this salad. So healthy and delicious.
