I absolutely love Brussels sprouts and how versatile they are! This raw Brussels sprouts salad is super delicious and healthy. It makes a great side dish but is also very filling, so it’s hearty enough to eat on its own for a meal.

Serves 2-3.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shaved raw Brussels sprouts (to save time, Trader Joe’s sells bags of shaved Brussels sprouts)
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup raw slivered raw almonds (you will toast them)
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp Heinz apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • garlic salt/black pepper

Begin by toasting the almonds. Heat a pan on medium heat (no oil) and add in the almonds. Watch them closely, stirring them around often, until they are a golden brown color. This should take about 5 minutes. Once toasted, set them aside to cool.

Put the avocado in the food processor along with the apple cider vinegar and a dash of garlic salt/black pepper. Blend until the avocado is a smooth and creamy consistency.

In a large mixing bowl add the Brussels sprouts, raisins, almonds and the avocado dressing. Toss well to combine the ingredients.
