This shaved brussels sprouts salad is made with smoked almonds, apples, dried cranberries and shredded brussels sprouts, tossed in a zesty lemon vinaigrette.
My friend, Anna, brought us this shaved brussels sprouts salad while I was recovering from surgery a few weeks ago. It was so good!! I had to get the recipe from her and make it again. Flynn and I both went nuts over it, I love just about anything with brussels sprouts. My friends were so sweet, feeding us really incredible meals while I was recuperating. I started to get a bit spoiled.
Even if you’re not a big brussels sprouts fan, you may like this combination. There’s sweet, savory and salty going on in here and they compliment each other so well. The recipe calls for a green apple, but I had McIntosh in the fridge so that’s what I used.
This brussels sprouts salad goes well with grilled meat or in a big bowl all by itself. 😉
How To Make Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp avocado oil
2 tbsp honey
salt and pepper, to taste
*optional: pinch of lemon zest
1 green apple, diced
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup smoked almonds, chopped
1 lb Brussels sprouts, shaved (I use a food processor to make this really easy or even easier, buy them already shaved!)
4 oz sharp white cheddar cheese *I use Cabot brand
First, blend the lemon juice, vinegar, avocado oil, honey, dijon, salt and pepper, and lemon zest in a blender or shake in a mason jar. Set aside. Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate for one hour and serve.
If you love Brussels sprouts, then you definitely need to try these bacon fat roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic drizzle. So good that we call it “veggie candy”!
