We would like to inspire you to try a different type of green salad for your next lunch or dinner: A brussel sprout salad with a tasty sesame seed dressing. You can either eat the salad as a main or use it as a side dish.
Fun fact: Brussel sprouts contain many valuable nutrients and are an exceptionally rich source of protein.
Ingredients (serves 4)
1 package of brussel sprouts (thinly sliced)
1 red apple (thinly sliced)
6-7 mint leaves ( chopped)
1 garlic clove
1 tsp lemon zest + 5 cl lemon juice
5 tps white sesame seeds
1 tsb honey
1 shallot (halved and thinly sliced)
1 tbsp white vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
A pinch of red chili (thinly sliced)
Salt & Pepper
A couple of unsalted cashew nuts
Use a pan and toast the sesame seeds on low heat – stir until the seeds got a nice, golden colour. Add the lemon zest and juice, sesame seeds, garlic clove, vinegar and honey in a blender and mix until you have a pasty consistency. Then gradually, add the olive oil and puree until smooth. Use a large bowl or plate and add the brussel sprouts, apple, shallot, chili and mint and mix with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with a few cashews on top!
