This shaved brussel sprout salad makes for an ideal summer snack or side dish. It should fit perfectly into any vegetarian diet.
As the weather warms up, there’s the imminent transition from soup to salad.
We crave light refreshing food that won’t make us sweat bullets. Heavy comforting chilies, creamy bisques and chunky vegetable soups go to the wayside to make room for crisp, refreshing salads.
Have you ever tried a shaved Brussels sprouts salad? It may seem odd to make a salad out of raw Brussels sprouts, but this is a great way of changing up your green salads and adding variety to your diet.
I promise it doesn’t take much time at all. All you do is remove the stems of the Brussels sprouts and then thinly slice them. You then separate any parts that are stuck together and this results in thin shavings which make the salad unique and fun.
The apple and blueberries give the salad sweet tang, while the avocado adds creaminess, the nuts add texture and the homemade dressing provides refreshing zest. Putting all the ingredients together results in a healthful, easy salad with all sorts of flavors and textures!
Unlike most green salads, this salad makes great leftovers! I brought the rest of the salad to work the next day in this Ball mason jar:
