Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Apple Salad

November 13, 2017

This hearty salad is so lovely on a cold night. I love to serve it with a thick bean soup and a chunk of crusty whole grain bread for a most satisfying meal.

Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredient List:

  • 10-12 Brussels sprouts, halved, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 3 ripe apples, halved, thinly sliced (I love Honey Crisp or Gala for this recipe)
  • ½ cup whole wheat (or gluten free) bread crumbs
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt

Step By Step Instructions:

Thinly slice Brussels so they look like they have been shaved into slivers. Combine with sliced apples in a salad bowl.

Place about 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet with bread crumbs over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring til the breadcrumbs have lightly browned and have absorbed the oil, about 2 minutes. Immediately toss the hot breadcrumbs with the Brussels sprouts and apples. Season lightly with olive oil, salt and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
