If brussels sprouts are your idea of a nightmare, then think again. This raw brussels sprouts salad with dried fruit, nuts and TONS of other good stuff is bound to change your mind. The texture is bright and crunchy, with the sweet and salty flavours coming together beautifully to create a Christmas salad you won’t be able to get enough of!
Last year, I showed you how to make the BEST garlic roasted brussels sprouts, and I promise you… they don’t disappoint… but this year, we’re not even wasting any time cooking them, we’re going full raw.
Before you think I’m crazy, just hear me out. We’re shredding these brussels sprouts super thin, like really thin. I would say this salad almost has the texture of coleslaw (but without the heavy creaminess), and raw brussels sprouts have a certain sweetness about them, which alongside the saltiness of the sun dried tomatoes and the crunch of the almonds is just divine.
I love eating this salad alone for lunch, but served inside a baked avocado is another great touch. If you’ve never tried baked avocado, you need to get on that!! It transforms into the softest, creamiest texture which is the perfect contrast to this zingy, crunchy salad.
