This is the perfect meal prep salad because it will hold up well in the fridge for several days! Also a great side dish as the days get too hot to handle!
Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad
juice from one orange (about 1/2 cup) and zest
juice from one lemon and zest
1/3 – 1/2 cup olive oil
1 ts dijon mustard
3 sprigs of thyme, leaves stripped
salt and pepper to taste
2 – 10 oz bags of shredded brussels sprouts
bundle of green onions, chopped
1/4 – 1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 oz raisins or dried cranberries (diced apple would even work well)
optional: goat cheese or bacon (if serving right away)
Whisk together ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. In a large bowl (preferably with a lid), mix together salad ingredients. Pour dressing over salad, combine, or shake up if you have a lid. You can serve right away or let sit in fridge so the acid in the dressing breaks down the brussels and the flavors combine.
Will keep in fridge a few days (bacon does not hold up very well though).
