Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Friends, just in time for Thanksgiving, ….. this amazing Brussels Sprout Salad. It’s similar to a Waldorf Brussels Sprout Salad, but but made with mandarin oranges, almonds, apples, and more!

Some people turn up their noses at Brussels sprouts, but our family loves them. We also serve for Thanksgiving these Brussels Sprouts with Honey Mustard Glaze but for today, I’m sharing this Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Honey Dijon Vinaigrette salad.

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

You can roast the sprouts first or you can finely shave them and serve raw. Also, it’s optional to grate the apples if you don’t want apple chunks. Either way, it’s a delicous salad.

Holiday Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Vinaigrette

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.
