Every dinner table needs a good salad and here is my offering to you this holiday season. A perfectly wintery salad with shaved brussels sprouts as the base. Fun fact is that I never ate brussel sprouts until I was all grown up (there’s probably some debating that) and living with Rob. My mother never liked them you see, but now we’ve been able to convert even her. Yay!

Anywho, this salad has a great seasonal base but it’s the zesty orange dressing that lifts it to a great salad over all. Also the fruity toppings and crunchy nuts make it fit for a festive dinner table. I love the vibrant greens and red and I hope you do too!

PS. If you are after more festive dishes for your green Christmas dinner or Sunday roast I just posted these as well: perfectly crispy roast potatoes, maple roasted carrots with gremolata and of course the ever so appreciated vegan gravy.
