Shaved Brussels & Persimmon Salad
12 oz bag of shaved brussel sprouts (or you can do this yourself to whole brussels)
2 persimmons sliced
3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Handful of pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds (optional; you may also use any nuts you have on hand)
1/2 cup of crumbled feta (optional; you may wish to omit if you want to keep this dairy free)
Handful of dried cranberries (optional; any tart/sweet dry fruit would work well)
Empty bag of shaved brussels (make sure they’re washed and dried) into a bowl.
Heat in microwave uncovered for 1 minute so that they’re slightly softened.
Add olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to brussels and massage well with hands.
Wash and slice persimmons into thin slices.
Lay them on top of the brussels.
Garnish with feta, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds, and extra olive oil if necessary. Serve and enjoy!
