“CRANBERRY & APPLE SHAVED BRUSSELS SPROUTS SALAD”
(not read on air)

Dressing*:

5 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. vinegar or apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
salt & pepper to taste

Whisk all together & set aside.

Salad:
1 lb. Brussels sprouts, washed & ends trimmed
1 green apple, cored & diced
3/4 c. dried cranberries
1/2 pine nuts*
1/3 c. shaved Parmesan cheese, shaved*

Use food processor or knife & shave Brussels sprouts in batches & set aside in medium bowl (should have a shredded look). In small pan, toast pine nuts for 4-5 mins. Set aside. Add apple, dried cranberries, & cooled nuts to Brussels sprouts, toss well & let sit for 30 mins to marinate.

*Notes: If you don’t think you will like the original dressing, you can go & purchase a different vinaigrette or make your own. Also, I’ve never used pine nuts so I don’t know exactly how they taste, but if you don’t like them, I would substitute them with sliced almonds or possibly pecans (but I think almonds would go better). The Parmesan I would buy shredded from refrigerated cheese section of grocery store*

========================================================
TIP: for a good moist dressing, add 2-3 eggs
