Brussels Sprouts Slaw Salad

This Thanksgiving I am planning on making this delicious Brussels Sprouts Slaw Salad instead of a more traditional salad. It has a honey mustard dressing, it is super easy to prepare and very delicious. I am planning on leaving it on the table so people can eat it whenever they would like . It is a perfect side dish or starter salad. If you love Brussels this is a wonderful go to whether for Thanksgiving or any time.

You can certainly leave out the Parmesan Cheese if you want to keep it dairy-free. You can also substitute Feta or Goat Cheese if you would like. I doubled this recipe .

I promise to post pictures of the finished salad.

Ingredients:

1 lb. Brussels Sprouts ( fresh)

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted. You can use whatever kind of nuts you’d like , hickory smoked almonds are also great in here if you can find them.

1/3 cup tart dried cherries, or cranberries , craisins or raisins. Whatever you like. I chopped mine.

1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan Cheese ( optional)

Honey Mustard Dressing:

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

1 minced garlic clove

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:

Shred the sprouts; First cut off the tough ends of the sprouts and any browning outer leaves. Shred them in a food processor using the slicing blade, pressing the sprouts against the blade with the provided pusher. If you don’t have a processor , slice them as thinly as possible, and chop them up .

If you are using raw almonds, toast them over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently in a frying pan. When they are fragrant and turning golden remove and cool down.

Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard and garlic. I sometimes use my blender which really emulsifies the dressing.  In a medium to large bowl, toss the shredded sprouts with the almonds, chopped dried fruit, cheese and dressing .

Serve!
