1.  Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl, toss brussels sprouts with olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.

2.  Slice the top off of the head of garlic and peel away the skin so the cloves are showing. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap in foil. Place on the baking sheet with the brussels sprouts. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. At the 30 minutes, remove the Brussel sprouts and let the garlic cook for another 15 minutes.

3.  Remove garlic from oven and let cool. When cool enough to handle, pinch the cloves out one-by-one into a food processor/blender. Add the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, mustard and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Blend until creamy.

4.  Place the brussels sprouts, radish, and ground chicken into the large mixing bowl and add the desired amount of garlic dressing. Toss well. Place in a bowl and garnish with seeds and season with salt and pepper.  Enjoy!
