Prep Time 25 minutes
Servings 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lbs Brussels sprouts stems trimmed and outer leaves removed
  • 2 cups curly leaf kale ribs removed, leaves thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red onion sliced very thin
  • ½ cup chopped/crushed roasted almonds
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 blood oranges peel removed, cut into segments

Dressing:

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2.5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Combine lemon zest, juice, honey, crushed red pepper, and salt in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking continuously until well combined.
  2. Shred the Brussels sprouts in a food processor with the slicing blade (or thinly slice by hand). Add the sprouts, kale, red onions, almonds, and feta to a large salad bowl and pour in the dressing. Toss to combine, and top with blood orange segments.

Recipe Notes

Note: shred the Brussels sprouts with the slicing blade of a food processor, slice thinly by hand, or buy pre-shredded.

For the almonds, I buy dry roasted and salted, then I put them in a Ziploc bag and use a big spoon to smash them into crushed pieces.  (It's a highly scientific process.)
