Paleo & Whole 30 Brussels Sprouts Slaw

2 Jan

I’ve been trying to think of some new ideas for side dishes.  Nine times out of ten we toss vegetables with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper, and roast them in the oven.  Easy, simply, delicious!  However, sometimes you want to get a little more creative.  This panned out nicely.

Ingredients:

1 pound raw shaved brussels sprouts (or buy whole and shred in food processor)

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup dried cranberries (Whole 30 compliant like these are sweetened with fruit juice)

1 large clove garlic, minced

1/4 + 1/8 tsp. kosher salt

1 1/2 tbl. dijon mustard (I use Westbrae Natural brand because it meets Whole 30 standards – no sugar, no chardonnay in it!)

3 tbl. apple cider vinegar

6 tbl. extra virgin olive oil

Method:

Mash the minced garlic with the salt using the back of a spoon to form more of a paste.  Whisk in dijon and apple cider vinegar.  While whisking slowly drizzle in olive oil.  Combine shaved sprouts, almonds, and cranberries in a large serving dish.  Pour vinaigrette over the top and toss to coat.
