  • 1 pound brussels sprouts

  • ½ cup dried cranberries or apricots

  • ¼ cup roasted, shelled sunflower seeds

  • ¼ cup red onion, finely diced

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • Pepper to taste


  1. To prepare sprouts, cut off stem and peel away wilted or discolored leaves. Shred by cutting into thin slices, similar to how you’d cut a mushroom, or pulse in a food processor.

  2. Toss brussels sprouts, dried fruit, sunflower seeds and red onion in a medium-mixing bowl.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, honey and coriander.

  4. Add vinaigrette to salad mixture, toss and enjoy!
