Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Dried Cranberries & Slivered Almonds (Foo Foo Salad)

IMG_7242

Thanks to my friend Courtney, this salad has a fun nickname! I made it for the first time when I had her over for dinner early this Spring. I had never tried it before but it turned out to be a hit. She has made it for kids she babysits for; and even the kids loved it! This salad can be served either warm or at room temperature. It is full of sweet and salty flavor, but still maintains its healthy integrity. Enjoy!

Serves: 4

-1 bag shredded Brussels Sprouts (around 3.5 cups worth)

-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

-1/2 cup dried cranberries

-1/2 cup honey roasted slivered almonds

-2 teaspoons salt

-1 teaspoon pepper

Heat olive oil in a large pan on medium heat. It should take about 30 seconds to heat up effectively, and then add in the shredded Brussels sprouts. Cook the vegetable for 5-7 minutes, or until tender. Stir every minute. Add in the salt, pepper, cranberries, and honey roasted slivered almonds. Stir well so that the ingredients are evenly distributed, and taste for salt & pepper. Adjust as needed.
