Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad with Hazelnuts

A warm tangy-sweet dressing made with sugar-free maple syrup and apple cider vinegar envelopes shaved Brussels sprouts, while Parmesan, pomegranate seeds and toasted hazelnuts add a crunchy garnish.

Keto Air Fryer Mashed Cauliflower Balls

You won’t miss mashed potatoes when you sink your fork through the crunchy pork rind top layer into this cheesy mashed cauliflower morsel.
