Apple & Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, stems removed
  • 2 medium red apples, diced (300 grams)
  • 1/2 cup almonds, cut in half/sliced
  • optional toppings: sesame seeds

Creamy Balsamic


  • Toast the almonds. In a nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat, add almonds and toast for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and fragrant. Make sure to stir so they do not burn. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Make the dressing. Add all ingredients to a small bowl or jar and mix until combined. Add more water if you would like a thinner consistency. Set aside.
  • Shred the brussels sprouts. Run through your food processor with the larger shredding attachment. Add to a large bowl with the apples and almonds. Mix in dressing and stir to combine. Top with sesame seeds if using and enjoy!


Store in a tightly sealed glass bowl in the fridge for up to 5 days.
