Brussel Sprout Slaw

























If you like Brussels sprouts, be sure to give this a try. Leaving the sprouts raw keeps them crisp and mild in flavor with none of the distinctive odor that comes from cooking them. I add some slivered almonds for crunch and some raisins and cranberries for sweet and it is so good.  I use Star Extra Virgin Olive Oil with maple syrup with just a touch of Dijon mustard and it's just perfect!  Serve this salad with just about anything. 

Brussel Sprout Slaw 

3 1/2 cups shaved and shredded Brussel sprouts 
1/2 cup golden raisins 
¼ cup dried cranberries 
1/2 cup raw slivered almonds 
1/2 cup green onions 
¼ cup chopped red pepper (optional) 
1/3 cup Star Fine Foods Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
1/4 cup maple syrup 
1 tablespoon dijon mustard 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon black pepper 

Add the shredded and sliced sprouts to a large bowl. Toss in the golden raisins, red pepper if using, dried, almonds, and  cranberries and green onions. 





























In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper together. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss everything together. 

Let the salad sit for at least 30 minutes before serving. 

Note: Add ½ cup finely diced green apple and ¼ cup crisp bacon for a real treat. 

Look for STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the olive oil section of our local grocery store or online at http://shop.starfinefoods.com/Extra-Virgin-Olive-Oil/p/STAR-00011&c=Star@OliveOils.
