Growing up in an Asian household, salad was not really a thing that we ate often. The only time I recall ever having western style salads was in the summer when we had a backyard bbq. And, that was maybe only once a year. It was not until I was in my teens that I was properly exposed to salads. I think my first was the classic chicken ceasar salad and boy was it a revelation. The punchy cream dressing was just so good toss with those romaine leaves. I knew I was missing out at this point. After that, I ate ceasar salads…a lot! After that, I tried ranch dressing and fell in love with that so naturally it went in everything. I must have overdid it back then because I cringe at ranch dressing now.

Now as an adult, salads are just part of my life and I often always have some version of it with my meals. They are now heavy on the vegetables and light on the dressing. I absolutely despise overdressed salads. I want to taste the vegetables, not just the dressing! This shaved brussel sprouts salad is perfect for fall. Crunchy brussel sprouts paired with apples and crasins for a touch of sweetness and pumpkin seeds for some additional crunch.

  • 2.5 - 3 cups shaved brussel sprouts
  • 1 small gala apple, diced
  • 2 tbsps crasins
  • 2 tbsps pumpkin seeds
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 3 tbsps red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, honey, mustard and mayo for the dressing until combined. Add in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and whisk until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a medium bowl, add in all of the salad ingredients. Pour in the dressing and toss to combine. I like to do this about 15 minutes in advance to allow all the flavors to meld together.
  • Slivered almonds are a great substitute for the pumpkin seeds.
