Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Spiralized Apple Slaw with Maple-Cider Dressing and Pomegranates

I could eat a brussels sprouts salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Let me tell you why and how.

Why: I’m obsessed with brussels sprouts – they’re delicious anyway you prepare them: sauteed in a skillet, soy glazed, roasted, cooked in a soup, baked into a frittata.

How: for breakfast, you can shred brussels sprouts and top with a fried egg. For lunch, you can enjoy it as a salad just like today’s recipe, and for dinner, it can be an appetizer or entree, topped with your favorite protein (ie baked chicken.)

If you’re still looking for recipe ideas for your holiday table, make this salad – it’s refreshing, just sweet enough, colorful, healthy, and comes together very quickly.

The longer the brussels sit in the dressing, the more they soften, making leftovers even better!

So beautiful :) Love this*
TeLee says:
Beautiful. I can't get my blade to turn, it seems to be stuck and I dont want to break it...please help.
Maureen says:
Same thing happened to me. Here's the solution: Sometimes, it’s essential to keep the gears “greased.” To do this, place a drop of cooking oil (for example, olive oil) on the back of the blade, on the bottom where it twists. Then, twist the knob and keep twisting until it works. I've attached a video you may find helpful!

Looks delicious!!! Seems as though the spiralizer has been updated? Mine leaves a long thin round piece when finished.

It should! Email [email protected] if you have any questions!

Glad to know I am not the only one obsessed with Brussels! I feel like I'm going through withdrawal if I go a few days without them.
Francine says:
Can't wait to try this! Can I toss this with the dressing and eat over a couple of days? or do you think it will get too mushy? or is it best to only squeeze lemon over everything to keep the apples from browning and only toss the portion you are eating immediately with dressing. I'm eating for one so I tend to make meals and eat portions over several days.
Colleen says:
Currently eating this for lunch- it's so good! (I didn't have pomegranate on hand, so I added dried cranberries instead ?)
mary m young says:
If you ever have the opportunity to have a garden try growing Brussel sprouts. What fun. They grow off a long bending stalk with big leaves. Love the cold weather and can harvest after the snow falls. In New Hampshire here they don't get as big as they probably would get in a warmer climate but are such a treat.. I don't see how you can possibly spiralize them?!

How do you shred the Brussels sprouts?

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
