Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad
This shaved brussel sprout salad is topped with crisp apples, avocado, crunchy walnuts, chopped dates or cranberries and creamy goat cheese. It's finished with a tangy mustard vinaigrette and makes a great healthy side dish or lunch with chicken on top.
- 1 lb brussels sprouts washed and ends trimmed
- 5 chopped dates or ¼ cup dried cranberries
- 1 honeycrisp apple diced
- ⅓ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 sliced avocado optional
- 2-4 ounces crumbled goat cheese optional
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2/3 cup light tasting olive oil
- 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1-2 tablespoon pure maple syrup or honey
- 3 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
To shave the brussel sprouts, place them in the bowl of a food processor and blend on high for 10-20 seconds. Other ways to shred them include thinly slicing them with a knife or using a mandoline (be careful!).
Place the shredded brussel sprouts in a large bowl and add the dates, apples, walnuts, avocado and goat cheese. Set aside.
To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients in a small glass jar with a lid and shake well. If you don’t have a jar you can put them all in a medium bowl and whisk well. Serve dressing on top or on the side.
You can shred brussel sprouts up to two days in advance to save time.
Store in an air-tight container for up to one day without the dressing.
You can purchase store-bought dressing. Any vinaigrette would be good!
