Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Pumpkin Tahini Dressing

I love dark and leafy greens but winter time calls for a different salad filler.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS!

Some people cringe at the name but I on the other hand….SALIVATE!! They are so delicious and nutritious. If you don’t like them then you most likely haven’t had them prepared well.

Roast, Saute, Fry, Bake….

My personal favorite form of enjoying sprouts is shaved sprouts in a hearty salad. When these little mini cabbages are shaved they create a different salad ambiance. One that is perfect for cozy winters. Pair it with a creamy dressing and other wholesome veggies and you have yourself a well balanced lunch or dinner.

Most of the time, I enjoy shaved sprouts salad raw but occasionally when I want to warm my body up and still be “healthy” I give them a quick cook on a pan. The less time on the pan the more crunchy they are so customize the time to your palate.

This shaved sprout salad is paired with a super easy Pumpkin Tahini dressing. It is perfect if you are still riding the “Pumpkin” train or if you have cans of pumpkin left over and have no desire to make something sweet. This dressing pairs well with sprouts or any other salad.

Be healthy and eat your BRUSSELS SPROUTS!!
