When it comes to salads it is quite hard to find one that I truly like. Don’t you get tired of the same classic salad recipes with lettuce, mixed vegetables and a dressing thrown in a bowl? I do. Sometimes I feel the need of something interesting, different, with a unique taste.
This salad with brussels sprouts, apples and nuts is a perfect combination of sweet, salty, sour and crunchy. It’s a nutritious salad, fresh and ready in a few minutes. And you know what? It can be served and as a garnish next to a piece of simply cooked meal (chicken, pork or beef).
This time I ate it as a main dish and I liked it very much, it’s very tasty and all the ingredients fit perfectly.
Aaaaaa, you want the recipe? See down here!
Brussels sprouts (the quantity is up to you)
cranberry (the amount is up to you)
a handful of walnuts
2-3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
For dressing: juice of 1 lemon, 4 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Optional: 1 teaspoon mustard.
Wash the brussels sprouts and apples. . Cut the cabbage in small pieces and apples into medium pieces. Chope the walnuts with a knife into small pieces, but it is also perfect if you leave them whole. Put all ingredients in a bowl.
How to make the dressing?
In a small jar put lemon juice, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Put the lid of the jar and shake the composition for a few seconds. If you want you can put the ingredients in a bowl and mix them with a fork.
I prefer to make the dressing in a jar so that I can better shake the composition. It also often happens to do more dressing, so a jar is perfect because I can put the dressing in the refrigerator and to use it in other salads recipes too.
Pour dressing over the ingredients and mix with a spoon. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese on top.
It is incredibly good! You should try it! Enjoy!
