Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Friends, just in time for Thanksgiving, ….. THIS amazing salad.

Some people turn up their noses at Brussels sprouts, but our family loves them. I have a scrumptious recipe with pancetta coming up (delish for Thanksgiving), but for today, I’m sharing this Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Honey Dijon Vinaigrette salad.

You may have also tried my popular Asian Chicken Cranberry Salad or Layered Harvest Quinoa Salad.

Holiday Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Vinaigrette

Keep it simple

Have you ever noticed everyone rushing to this store and that, and to this dinner and that gathering?

Sometimes I get kinda caught up in it and feel I should be doing the same—when all I really want to do is cozy up on my couch with a cup of tea and our fluffy Whoodle.

Or eat hearty soups and crusty bread with friends who’ve become family (we have some great new friends here in our little hometown). Soups and salads are great to serve for a simple meal!

My calendar may at times look sort of empty (rare for me), and I wonder if I should be filling it with — more.

Slow down; enjoy the moments

This holiday season, let’s slow down and enjoy the moments.

I recently took a walk at dusk and grabbed the sunset in my mind for a memory. No phone, my husband was with me, and we both just sat with the chill of the air on our cheeks, for about 10 minutes.

Just taking it all in.

I plan to take it all in around our Thanksgiving table this year, too.

I cannot wait. Life is short; we need to savor it more.
