Honey Mustard Brussels Sprout Slaw
Crisp shredded Brussels sprouts tossed in a sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing with toasted almonds and dried cherries (or cranberries).
|1 pound||brussels sprouts|
|1/3 cup||slivered almonds, toasted (hickory smoked almonds would be great if you can find them)|
|1/3 cup||tart dried cherries or cranberries, chopped|
|1/3 cup||freshly grated Parmesan cheese|
|Honey Mustard Drssing:|
|1/4 cup||olive oil|
|2 tablespoons||apple cider vinegar|
|1 tablespoon||dijon mustard|
|1||garlic clove, pressed or minced|
|1/4 teaspoon||sea salt|
Shred the sprouts: First, cut off the tough ends of the sprouts and any browning outer leaves. Then shred them in a food processor using the slicing blade, pressing the sprouts against the blade with the provided plastic pusher. If you don't have a food processor, slice them as thinly as possible using a sharp chef's knife, then give them a few extra chops for good measure.
If you are using raw almonds, toast them over medium heat for three to four minutes, stirring frequently, until they are fragrant and turning golden on the edges.
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard and garlic until emulsified. In a medium serving bowl, toss the shredded sprouts with the almonds, chopped dried fruit, Parmesan and dressing. Serve.
