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….

This salad is nothing less than fabulous, fresh and worth trying 🙂 The combination of the crispy cabbage, the fat roasted almonds, the juicy and crispy apple the creamy feta cheese and the sour raspberries is  great in more than one way.

We served it with a great medium rare steak and oven roasted potatoes, but it goes well with kinds of meat or fish as well.
