“Don’t You Dare Boil Me” Brussels Sprout Salad
Description: Raw Brussels sprouts have a completely different flavor and texture from the boiled mess with which many of us grew up. This easy salad adds color and crunch to the Thanksgiving table.
Difficulty Level: Fairly Easy (chopping is the only challenge)
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time (minutes): none
16 Brussels sprouts
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries (more if you like)
6 to 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
2 small apples (or 1 large apple), cored and sliced (optional but delicious)
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon raw honey
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Trim the Brussels sprouts; then slice them with a knife or shred them with a food processor or a mandoline.
Combine the sprouts, the celery, the onion bits, the cranberries, and the apple pieces. Mix the remaining ingredients into a dressing, and toss half of the resulting dressing onto the salad, adding more dressing if needed.
