An energizing and healthy salad!


    For the salad

    • 1 bag Brussel sprouts
    • 3 small carrots shredded
    • 1/2 cup raw pecans

    For the dressing

    • Juice of 2 oranges
    • 2 T hemp oil (or oil of choice)
    • 2 T apple cider vinegar
    • 1 clove garlic minced
    • 1 tsp ginger minced
    • salt to taste


    1. Wash the Brusell sprouts, remove the ends and slice thin sideways. You can also just shred them using a shredder or mandolin.
    2. Peel and shred carrots
    3. Add the Brussel sprouts, carrots and pecans to a bowl .
    4. In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together.
    5. Pour the dressing over the salad. You can serve immediately, but I think the salad gets better if it sits a couple hours. The flavors really marinate and develop more the longer is sits.
    6. This should last 4-5 days in the fridge.
    7. Enjoy!

    1. I LOVE this salad recipe, Melissa! I've been a Brussels sprouts hater for 49 years, 6 months, and 2 days, but then I ate them shaved and sauteed with bacon and my Brussels life was changed forever. Now I can't wait to eat them again! :)
      1. I was the same way! I have developed a new love for them myself! This is the recipe that made me love them!
    2. I am not sure how I feel about this salad. I love cabbage but have not eaten Brussels sprouts till fairly recently. I think my orange was not sweet enought and the ginger made My salad a little too otter. Also, I want more vinegar in it. I am German, I like vinegary things. Also, I ended up steaming Brussels sprouts a little. With that being said, I think your palate is more accustomed to those flavors. Do you have a recipe for Brussels sprouts for a novice by any chance ?
      1. Sorry you didn't love it. Maybe this one is more your style? There is more acidity to it. Or if you like a roasted recipe, maybe this one.
