Shaved Brussels, Broccoli, & Almond Salad

by Kelli H. on November 18, 2011

This is a great fall salad!

This salad will make you feel so healthy and you’ll be happy you’re eating healthy. Healthy has never tasted so good. When I saw this recipe on Aubrey’s blog, italktofood, I knew I had to make it. I have a food sensitivity to cheese and last week I had indulged and it cost me. Unfortunately, I had a headache for 2 days and knew I needed to eat more fresh foods. This was just what the doctor ordered! Thank you, Aubrey, for creating such a delicious salad.

I had to change a couple things up because Whole Foods does not sell golden raisins. What gives?! I used Thompson raisins but after I ate it I realized I would love to use craisins. That way, I could also say it’s a holiday salad. You could bring it to a family dinner as a holiday cold salad — perfect! Or you could just enjoy it for lunch like I did.

Shaved Brussels, Broccoli, & Almond Salad
Adapted by italktofood

2 cups brussel sprouts, finely chopped
2 cups broccoli, finely chopped
3 T raisins or craisins <—– would be bomb!
1/3 cup sliced almonds 
1 t mustard 
1 T honey
1/2 t salt
2 T olive oil
1 t red wine vinegar 

1. In a large bowl or tupperware combine brussels, broccoli, raisins/craisins, and almonds. 
2. In a small bowl make dressing by combining mustard, honey, salt, and red wine vinegar. Whisk in olive oil. Pour dressing over veggies, stir, and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. 

Are you a fan of brussels?

Mmmm, that does look good! Sorry about the cheese – major bummer.

I’m not a fan of brussel sprouts at all. Maybe I just ate a bad one, but I’m willing to give it another try. 🙂

I am always reminded of that book I read when I was a kid when I have brussel sprouts. It had evil brussel sprouts in it or something…haha.

LOVE Brussels sprouts – always have, which I know is a bit weird… 🙂

Yes. Brussel sprouts somehow made it’s way into my heart one curious day at Trader Joe’s and we have never looked back. I especially love a little bit of char on them when I roast or saute them. Mmmm.

I made this recipe the other day. I came home from work and ran out of time for it to sit in the fridge so, I decided to take it and saute it instead. OMG was it good…the flavors warm with the craisins & sauce were fantastic! I ate it for lunch the next day cold and it was still so good.

Thanks for the great recipes Kel!!
