Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad With Apples And Walnuts


unknown

INGREDIENTS:

For the salad:

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 medium tart apple (like Granny Smith)
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

For the vinaigrette:

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

METHOD:

1 Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts. Using a sharp knife or using the thinest blade on a mandolin slicer, slice each sprout thinly. Slice the apple and red onion in the same manner. Combine in a large bowl.
2 Toast the walnuts in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant and lightly browned, about two minutes. Add to the Brussels sprout mixture. Toss to combine.
3 Combine the vinaigrette ingredients into a jar with a tight-fighting lid. Close the lid and shake until well-combined. Pour over the Brussels sprout mixture, and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
