Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

Happy New Year and what a year it will be! Baby boy is only 4 weeks away now, and I'm on maternity leave starting next week. I'm so excited and anxious for all of it. The nursery is almost done, and I'm starting to feel like I have enough clothes to clothe a new human. I know I'm not supposed to overdo it, but honestly what new mother only buys like 2 onesies and says, "I'm being practical."? None. 

This salad is practical though. No need to cook anything, and it's done in about 15 minutes. And I'm pretty sure raw Brussels sprouts are like the ultimate superfood. You get tricked though because it doesn't taste like you're eating a raw sprouts. It's delicious. 

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad
makes 4-6 side servings

1 lb Brussels sprouts (trimmed & shaved)
3/4 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup Parmesan (grated)

for the dressing
1/2 cup olive oil
1 lemon (juice only)
1 small shallot (minced)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper

Shave Brussels sprouts into a bowl. Alternatively, you can buy them already shaved at a lot of grocery stores. Top with slivered or sliced almonds and Parmesan cheese.

In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing. Taste and adjust salt before pouring over salad.

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine everything. Refrigerate for an hour before serving to let flavors come together.
