About the Recipe
I love this salad and it was the perfect side to a Thanksgiving meal. It was actually so good that the next day I made it again in a larger quantity and tossed in some grilled chicken. Highly recommend.
I do think it helps to let this salad sit in the dressing for a bit before serving. The flavors come together and it softens the brussel sprouts.
The original recipe came from With Salt & Wit: https://withsaltandwit.com/shaved-brussels-sprout-salad/

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
sprinkle of salt and pepper
Whisk vinaigrette ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Toss salad ingredients together with vinaigrette. Let sit 10-15 minutes before serving.
What I'm Reading
I have been reading so many heavy things lately, this has been a welcome break!

All of that changes when a book of fairy tales arrives on her doorstep. Inside, Martha finds a dedication written to her by her best friend—her grandmother Zelda—who died under mysterious circumstances years earlier. When Martha discovers a clue within the book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda’s past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever.
