Raw Brussels Sprout Salad

Many people have the idea that brussels sprouts taste bad and we could not disagree more with that statement!! We just love the little green ball vitamin bomb and we serve it in many different variations for all kinds of meat and seafood 🙂 Actually we believe that any vegetable tastes great if you make it the right way – so don’t reject it if you have had one or two bad experiences with a vegetable. Keep trying and find your own favorite 🙂

Among our favorite recipes containing brussels sprouts is our honey glazed version together with this raw salad with honey/mustard dressing and roasted cashew nut. This salad does not in any way taste like brussels sprouts as most remember them from their childhood (cooked to death), so there is no excuse for not trying it….
