How was everyone’s 4th? Since many of you may have been grilling and/or eating lots of food yesterday I thought I’d share a salad today. I found this delicious honey mustard brussels sprouts salad last year on Pinterest and it’s perfect for detoxing after all the food yesterday.
I followed the recipe exactly except I used shaved brussels sprouts from the grocery store because they were out of fresh brussels sprouts. I also quartered the recipe since it was just for me.
For the recipe you’ll need:
- brussels sprouts
- dried cranberries
- red wine vinegar
- dijon mustard
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- olive oil
Since I got shaved brussels sprouts I didn’t need to prepare the brussels sprouts so all I had to do was make the dressing and chop the pecans. To make the honey mustard vinaigrette whisk together the red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Drizzle the dressing over the washed brussels sprouts, add the chopped pecans and dried cranberries and you’re good to go!
So good and healthy! Be warned though that raw brussels sprouts are harder/crunchier than regular lettuce salad so by the end I’m usually a little tired of chewing haha.
