Brussels Sprouts Salad


Author Notes: This recipe will convert even the brussels sprout haters out there, if they even notice that they are eating them in the first place. Sometimes I add pomegranate seeds, change up the toasted almonds and use pepitas or pecans instead, depending on what I have on hand but something magical happens when you mix the sprouts, cheese and vinaigrette, so don't mess with that.carole_nelson_brown

Directions

  1. Slice the brussells sprouts into thin slivers, either by hand or using a mandoline.
  2. Put the shredded sprouts, almonds and parmesan in a bowl.
  3. Mix the oils, vinegar, dijon and salt together - I like to shake it up in a small jar.
  4. Pour the dressing over the sprouts/cheese/almonds and mix well - don't be afraid to use your hand to make sure the dressing is really worked in. Let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving.
