  • 1 c. walnuts chopped & lightly toasted
  • 1/2 c. sliced almonds chopped & lightly toasted
  • 1/2 c. + 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a large lemon
  • 3 tbsp. apple cinder vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard

Instructions

Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad

  1. Chop or shred the Brussels sprouts in a food processor, with a mandolin (which I never seem to have luck with) or chop with a knife. Toss the sprouts in a large bowl, top with toasted walnuts, almonds & grated cheese.
  2. In a small jar, mix together your dressing ingredients: olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and mustard. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Put a lid on the jar and shake vigorously until well mixed. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir thoroughly.

For the toast

  1. In a medium sized bowl mash your avocados and mix with the salt. The salt is very important, so if I were you I wouldn't skip that step. It amplifies the flavor of the avocado perfectly. Toast your bread, then top with a couple of tablespoonfuls of mashed avocado. Then top with the Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
When toasting the walnuts and almonds I chose to do that in my toaster oven on the broil setting. If you chose to toast them that way as well, my only warning is that they will brown FAST so keep an eye on them or you will end up with burnt nuts. No one wants that and by that time you'll be itching to dig in to this salad and will want to dive in already. I would say it only takes maybe 3-4 minutes - but just watch closely.
[More of My 2 Cents]
This salad is best served immediately, because after a while it will get soggy. If you happen to have leftovers it's still great the next day but best the first day! I wouldn't store longer than an extra day.
