American Brussel Sprout Salad Recipe

”  I hate brussel sprouts!  I’ve not eaten them since I was very young and was made to.  However, when I was in California one time, I kept coming across brussel sprout salads.  I thought it was beyond weird to have such as thing until I went to a friend’s house and she served a version of it.  I tentatively had a mouthful and to my amazement loved it so much I went back for seconds ….. and then asked for the recipe….”

Ingredients:

660g brussel sprouts

1 cup almonds well toasted

3 tbs finely grated Reggiano Parmigiano (if you are not on the maintenance phase of The In-Sync Diet 6 Step Plan yet you should leave this out)

2 tbs finely sliced chives

1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil

2 tbs of truffle oil (hard to find but I found an olive oil that has truffle oil in it)

2 tbs lemon juice

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp freshly ground pepper

¾ cup of dried cranberries (dried fruit is high in sugar so not ideal.  Could easily be left out or just add a small handful.  Fleur says the incredibly nutritious of the sprouts makes it okay to add just a few!)

 

Instructions:

 

  1. Wash the sprouts and slice as thinly as possible
  2. Make the dressing by mixing the olive and truffle oils, lemon juice, salt and pepper
  3. Toss the sprouts, almonds, cranberries, cheese and chives together and then toss in the dressing
  4. Sprinkle on a few chives to garnish
