Delicious, Easy, Brussel-Sprout Salad
Sprouts are much like marmite, people tend to either love them or hate them. Some people (my husband) get completely over excited about the prospect of a Christmas sprout and others (like my daughter) will literally throw them off their plate in disgust.
I used to hate them. And for a vegetarian, when there's not much else to eat for Christmas lunch other than the veggies, that does come as a disappointment. I'm not sure what changed, but I am now pretty partial to a sprout. I definitely prefer them roasted to boiled. But my favourite way to eat them is raw in a salad.
So if you are left with lots of leftover sprouts and you're not sure you can manage another boiled one. Try them out as a salad. I think they make a surprisingly delicious and very easy dish.
How to make Brussel-Sprout Salad
1. Shred brussel sprouts (I used a magimix).
2. Add nuts and dried fruit (I used almonds, sesame seeds, and raisins)
3. Make the dressing. You will need:
- 1/4 cup Olive OIl
- 1/2 squeezed lemon
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 Teaspoons of dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of honey
Grab an old jam jar, shake it all together and pour over. Mix together and serve.
It's as easy as that! Let me know if you give this recipe a spin, I'd love to hear what you think of it... Happy Christmas!
