Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawWho’s ready for a crisp, crunchy, sweet rainbow of fall flavors all up in their face?

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawThat’s exactly what you’re going to get with this Autumn Brussels Sprout Slaw: crisp raw shaved Brussels sprouts, crunchy Honeycrisp apples, sweet golden raisins and roasted beets.

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawThere’s also some purple cabbage and pecans tossed in for good measure (just in case the Brussels weren’t providing enough crispety-crunchiness for you).

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawI can’t forget to tell you about the apple vinaigrette that makes this salad shine. So originally when I made this salad for my meal delivery service a few weeks ago it was with a poppyseed vinaigrette, which was super pretty with all the little flecks in it.

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawBut this time I opted for an apple vinaigrette that I’ve made hella times before, so I figured it was time to share it with you. This apple vinaigrette is fall-obsessed basic bitch gold, which is precisely what I love about it. There’s literally fresh apple blended right into the salad dressing. Such a good move.

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawIf you’ve never enjoyed brussels sprouts in raw form you should! They taste so fresh and have the most satisfying crunch when you bite into them. And they’re hearty, so you can dress this salad and it won’t wilt, meaning you can make a huge batch and eat it for days while you endlessly burn your pumpkin caramel cupcake candle and fangirl over fall with me.

Autumn Brussels Sprout SlawShaved is definitely the way to go for this Autumn Brussels Sprout Slaw, so definitely get them pre-shaved from the store if you can find them and you want to save about 20 minutes of prep time (and your precious knuckles from the mandolin).

    How funny! We just had a raw Brussels slaw this past week. great minds! Love this version with beets and pecans. Makes me want to head back to the market for more. 🙂 I wish we had a place you could buy them pre-shaved here in Vermont like you mentioned. That would be a plus! Have a great weekend.

    OMG! You really got me drooling over this recipe. I’m working on a butternut squash & brussels recipe today! I wanted to make a salad with them for Thanksgiving but I hate using the mandolin (both mike and i always come too close to losing a thumb!). Def making the recipe. The vinagrette looks so good and healthy too! Love this one!!!! XOXO
