Brussels sprouts final recipe
About 1 - 2 lbs of Brussels sprouts. Large ones are easier to shred than the smaller ones, but I think the small ones taste better. We started with a mandolin but it was too cheap & broke so we switched to my sister's food processor which was hella fast! Then we tossed the shredded raw Brussels with some really nice olive oil (1 TBL ) & some apple cider vinegar. Put it in the fridge.
Some bacon ... High quality, raw slightly smokey bacon I got a trader joe's when I left the really good stuff I got a bi-rite at home. We cooked up what looked like 4-5 pieces of bacon. Cut/break them up into pieces. Let the oil soak into a paper towel. Any kind of interesting bacon like pork will do.
Chop up some toasted almonds, pecans. Not too fine. Chop up some green onions, dried fruit (we had figs, cranberries & blueberries but because they had sugar in the crans & bbs I didn't eat them).
In some sort of jar put olive oil & a white vinegar. We only had grocery store white wine vinegar but a white balsamic would have been really good (yea, I had that at home too!). Then add the green onion & a bit of salt & pepper. Put the jar in the fridge. We did this about 4-5 hrs before dinner. Just before dinner we tossed the bs with the dressing, added the nuts & bacon & tossed some more. I set aside my salad & added the sweetened fruit & tossed some more.
As usual, the better the ingredients the better the salad. Olive oil keeps it green!
