Who is a Brussels Sprouts fan?
Yes? No? Not sure? Maybe not?
I was chatting with a friend at work last week that said she doesn’t like Brussels Sprouts, but said she wondered how they would be raw in a coleslaw like salad. She commented that she likes cabbage in coleslaw, but not cooked cabbage.
It got me thinking….. I am a Brussels sprout fan…. adore them roasted…. but I, too, wondered how they would be shredded and served raw in a slaw-type salad.
I bought a bag for me and a bag for my friend.
Trying to eat healthier these days, I decided on a vinaigrette slaw. My friend made a creamy version using Marzetti slaw dressing, and she and her family loved it.
Here is the recipe for how I made mine. Hope you will give it a try!
- 1 12oz bag Shaved Brussels Sprouts (or you can slice/shave your own)
- 1/4 cup finely minced onion
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
- 3 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1 tsp. Sugar (or sweetener)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all together and let marinade in refrigerator for at least a half hour before serving.
You can change it up by adding sliced almonds or chopped apples or anything else you like.
Cheers & Hugs,
