Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Cashew Dressing | Serves: 4


Description

Brussels sprouts are my comfort food, boiled until soft, topped with a knob of sweet butter and crackling of pepper. This raw winter salad of finely shredded Cruciferous family vegetables makes a colorful and chunky side salad, with a delicious vegan salad dressing made with cashews. It has a crunch-like chicken salad, and I often serve alongside the White Beans and Farro salad,  both recipes are from The New Heirloom Garden.
