Addictive Brussels Sprouts Salad
The second I laid eyes on this salad, brussels sprouts jumped to the top of my grocery list. I had to have it. I'm not sure I've ever been this motivated to make a salad before! Toasted walnuts, crunchy brussels sprouts smothered with finely grated Parmesan cheese and lightly coated in a mustard dressing! HECK YES.

Apparently the recipe serves 8. In actuality, the whole bowl served ME. Like-- almost in one sitting. I'm getting the feeling that I'll be binging on this salad for the next few months. You'll see what I mean when you find yourself dipping your fork directly into the bowl of leftovers in the fridge. You can't say I didn't warn you!

And we are off!

Cut the ends off the sprouts. Pull off any yucky leaves and rinse/soak in a bowl of water.

Get the walnuts toasting in a little pan on the stove. Keep your eyes on it. Takes about 5- 8 mins on med. heat.

You can use a food processor, mandolin or a knife to shred the sprouts. Mandolin shredding was kinda scary!

My eager fingers were a little too close to the blade.

Put the olive oil, apple cider vinegar & mustard in a little jar. Salt & pepper should be thrown in too!

SHAKE IT UP. Instant dressing!

Because I used a mandolin, there were little leaves that didn't get sliced. I chopped the rest up with a knife.

Finely grate your cheese. Use the good stuff! It really pays off.

Put the shredded sprouts into a big mixing bowl. Add the cheese & walnuts.

Pour the dressing over the top. MIX MIX MIX.

Dig in.

Don't be shy.

serves 8

(recipe adapted slightly from Shauna at Gluten Free Girl)

24 brussels sprouts, shredded
8 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano, finely grated

1 cup toasted walnuts, in pieces
9 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons apple cinder vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
salt & pepper

Shred the brussels sprouts in a food processor, mandolin or chop with a knife!  Toss the sprouts in a bowl, top with toasted walnuts & grated cheese.  In a small jar, add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and mustard with a sprinkle of salt & pepper. Put a lid on the jar and shake it up! Pour the dressing over the salad and stir thoroughly!  Best served immediately, although I ate leftovers the next day and it still held up well!
