Ingredients Needed for Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad with Honey Dijon Dressing
This is what you all know I like to call a no-recipe recipe. Only the best kind.
Throw a little of this and a little off that in and it always turns out great.
No exact measurements needed, just willing tastes buds 🙂 I include crispy bacon bits, juicy pomegranate arils, crunchy sunflowers seeds, and salty grated Parmesan. Hitting all the notes over here!
- 1 Pound Brussel Sprouts
- ½ Pound Bacon - sliced into thin strips or bits
- ½ Cup Pomegranate Arils
- ½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
- ½ Cup Parmesan - grated
Honey Dijon Dressing
- ½ Cup Olive Oil
- 1-2 Tablespoons Honey
- 1-2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- ¼ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- Salt & Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to taste
This dressing is simple and easy to whip up. A little EVOO as Rachel Ray would say, honey, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar -- whisk whisk -- salt and pepper -- whisk and taste -- and waalaa. Done.
It is also delicious served on any other regular salad you would eat too!
Other Add In Ideas You Could Use
- Slivered Almonds
- Candied Pecans
- Goat Cheese
- Feta Cheese
Basically, any of your favorite salad add-ins will work. This isn't fussy at all.
Equipment Needed Shaving Brussel Sprouts
Using a mandolin will make your life 1000% easier.
You could use a food processor or a knife but skip all that and get yourself this handheld mandolin I found on Amazon and go to town. Trust me, it makes the world of difference (affiliate link)!
How Long Will Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad Last?
This will last covered in the fridge until the next day. Any longer than a day I find it to get soggy and not so great.
So next time you're asked to bring a green Thanksgiving side OR you just need to switch up your weeknight salad game, you know what to make!
Simple, easy, healthy, and a crowd pleasure is always a win win around here!
