At every family meal I make sure to serve some raw vegetables in addition to the cooked ones. You will be surprised by how much you like this crunchy salad of raw brussels sprouts.

Ingredients

1 pound (450g) brussels sprouts (preferably larger-size ones), ends trimmed, 2 outer layers of leaves removed

3/4 cup (115g) whole almonds, toasted (see box, page 34)

1/2 small red onion, chopped into small pieces (about 1/4 cup/40g)

3 Tbsp (45ml) fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp honey

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions

Cut the brussels sprouts in half the long way, from the stem end to the top, and thinly slice. Place the sliced sprouts in a bowl.

Roughly chop the toasted almonds and add to the bowl, along with the chopped onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, oil, honey, salt, and black pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
