Kale & Brussels Sprout Salad

Difficulty: Easy, takes some time but is easy

Category: Salad

Time: 30 minutes to prep. Can be made day before

Servings: 10




1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (read your labels no sugar)

1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

1 tablespoon minced shallot

1 small garlic clove, pressed

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning

Freshly ground black pepper

2 large bunches of Tuscan kale (about 1 1/2 pounds total), center stem discarded, leaves thinly sliced

12 ounces brussels sprouts, trimmed, finely grated or shredded with a knife

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil



Combine lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Balsamic vinegar, shallot, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper in a small bowl. Stir to blend; set aside to let flavors meld. Mix thinly sliced kale and shredded brussels sprouts in a large bowl.

Slowly whisk olive oil into lemon-juice mixture. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Dressing, kale mixture, prepared 8 hours ahead. Cover dressing and kale mixture separately and chill.

*Note: this salad is really wonderful. The Kale and Brussels sprouts don’t get saggy, so even the next day it is great as a left over. I took some to work the next day and added chopped cooked chicken and it was just as good.
