Pomegranate and Citrus Salad with Brussels Sprouts

Serves 6

For all ingredients, please consider using those that have been grown organically.

10-12 ounces Brussels sprouts, shaved or thinly sliced (Trader Joe's sells them by the bag all ready to go)
2 pomegranates, seeded
2 tangerines such as Clementine or Satuma, peeled and chopped
8-12 kumquats, sliced and seeded
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 teaspoon raw agave nectar
  sea salt
  freshly ground black pepper
1 avocado, diced, optional

Combine all of the ingredients, except the avocado if you are using it, in  a large bowl. Season to taste with additional sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and lemon juice.

Add the avocado and transfer the salad to a platter to serve.

Without the avocado, the salad will keep well in the refrigerator for a few days.
