Salad Ingredients

You are going to love all of the ingredients in this fresh salad!

  • Brussels sprouts– shaved Brussels sprouts make a great salad base. They are so crisp and crunchy and hold up well.
  • Strawberries– look for red, ripe, and juicy berries!
  • Avocado– peeled, pitted, and chopped!
  • Feta cheese– if you aren’t a fan of feta, you can use goat cheese or even Parmesan cheese.
  • Candied pecans– I use my homemade candied pecans, they are the best! The sugary, sweet crunch is amazing!
  • Red onion- thinly sliced!

Poppy Seed Dressing

The poppy sweet dressing really makes the salad and it’s easy to whisk up! So much better than store bought dressing! You can find poppy seeds at any grocery store in the spice aisle.

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, vinegar, honey, and poppy seeds. Whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Alternatively, you can make the dressing in the blender.

You can make the dressing in advance, it will keep in the fridge for up to one week!

How to Make Strawberry Brussels Sprouts Salad

Once the dressing is made, it is time to make the salad.

  • First, shave the Brussels sprouts. Use a food processor with the slicing attachment and pulse until the Brussels sprouts are thinly sliced. You can also use a mandoline or sharp knife if you don’t have a food processor.
  • Place the shredded Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add the sliced strawberries, avocado, cheese, candied pecans, and red onion.
  • Drizzle the salad with desired amount of dressing and toss well. Serve immediately.
