Greens with Apples Dates and Almonds

A couple of months ago, Jeff and I attended a birthday party where the menu was diverse and incredibly mouth watering. One of the salads was so delicious, that  I was determined to recreate it the next night. It was a blend of shaved brussel sprouts, lettuce and cabbage, shaved parmesan, slivered almonds, sliced apples and dates. I came up with a dressing that I thought would go well with these ingredients, and the result was divine!

I actually found the greens blended and packaged at Trader Joe’s but you could easily add yours separately and then combine with the other ingredients.
