Broccoli and Brussel Sprouts Salad

Thinly slice a half pound of brussel sprouts and place in a bowl.

For the broccoli, I use bagged broccoli. You could also buy bunches of broccoli and use that instead. Chop the stems, so only the head of broccoli and a small portion of the stem is left. Thinly slice the broccoli until you get 3 cups and add it to the bowl with brussel sprouts.

Next, chop 2 apples of your choice into bite sized pieces. I used gala apples to add sweetness. Squeeze half a lemon over the apple pieces to prevent them from browning. Then add them in with the brussel sprouts and broccoli.

The base of your salad is done now – whoohoo! Time for the honey mustard dressing!

Honey Mustard Dressing

Oil: 1/4 cup high quality olive oil or avocado oil

Mayo: 1/4 cup mayo

Vinegar: 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

Mustard: 1/4 cup Dijon mustard – you get that spicy kick from the Dijon!

Honey: 1 Tablespoon honey – this dressing isn’t super sweet, so if you like things sweeter you may want to add more.

Recipe Tips

After mixing the honey mustard dressing into the salad, let it sit for an hour before serving so that the veggies can soften and become more of a slaw.

I slice the brussels vertically to get the oval slices, which can be risky for the fingers! If that’s uncomfortable, try cutting the brussel sprouts in half and lay them flat on the cutting board and then thinly slice them.

Don’t forget to sprinkle with sunflower seeds before serving 🙂

Notes

  1. I slice the brussels vertically to get the oval slices, which can be risky for the fingers! If that’s uncomfortable, try cutting the brussel sprouts in half and lay them flat on the cutting board and then thinly slice them.
  2. After mixing the dressing into the salad, let it sit for an hour before serving so that the veggies can soften and become more of a slaw.
  3. The honey mustard dressing isn’t super sweet. I like that it has a little kick from the Dijon mustard and just a hint of sweetness! Adjust the mustard and honey as needed for your taste buds!

  1. 5 stars
    I’ve made this healthy and tasty recipe twice now. Very refreshing salad in both Summer and Winter. I too love that I had the dressing ingredients on hand like the other reviewer stated.

  2. This recipe is nice and crunchy…..love that there are no “exotic” ingredients. I had everything in my frig and pantry with no special items from the grocery.
