Brussels Sprouts Salad

I have no idea how I decided I just *had* to have a Brussels sprouts salad however a few days ago it hit me. Honestly…no clue why but the more I thought about it the more I was determined to make it. I’m glad I did! The dressing was sweet and tangy. It is made with chia instead of nuts or oils and it thickens nicely…kind of reminds me of a thousand island dressing too!

Brussels Sprouts Salad

Dressing Ingredients:

1.5 cups almond milk (unsweetened)
3 Tbsp chia seeds
6 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 mejdool dates
1/2 cup healthy ketchup
2-3 Tbsp pickle relish

Whiz it all up EXCEPT for the relish in the blender then add the ketchup. Pop it into the fridge while you prepare the salad.

Salad Ingredients:

2lbs clean Brussels sprouts
1/4 of a red onion
1 large carrot

Slice the Brussels sprouts and the onion in the food processor using the slicing blade. Replace the blade with the grating blade and grate the carrot.

Toss the salad ingredients with the dressing ingredients once the dressing has thickened up. To me it tasted great right away but I’m sure once you let the flavours blend and the veggies wilt a bit it’ll taste even better.

Let me know if you try this.
