Because today we’re bringing you part two of our recipe trilogy, and it’s important to have the first two components ready.
So what is part 2, you ask?
Or rather, shaved brussel sprout salad with creamy tahini dressing.
You’re probably wondering what Thousand Island dressing and shaved brussel sprout salad have to do with each other. We understand your confusion, and we sympathize with you, but we can’t give you that information- at least, not until tomorrow! 🙂
All we ask is that you please trust us on two things:
1. This salad + yesterday’s Thousand Island Dressing + tomorrow’s recipe is something you do not want to miss out on!
2. Shaved Brussel Sprouts taste a-maz-ing with a tangy, creamy tahini dressing!
So please go make this salad (but save it for tomorrow!) and if you haven’t already made yesterday’s Thousand Island Dressing (do we sound like a broken record yet?) you should do that, too.
Oh, and it might also be a good idea to run out to the store and find yourself some tempeh, too 😉
Creamy Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad
Time: 5 min
Makes: ~ 1 cup
1 c. brussel sprouts, shaved (about 3 brussel sprouts)
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
3-6 tsp water
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp yellow mustard
1/2 tsp onion powder
pinch of salt
In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients except for the brussel sprouts (adjust the water as necessary- it needs to be runny enough to sufficiently coat the brussel sprouts). Pour the dressing over the shaved brussel sprouts and stir until everything is fully incorporated and the brussel sprouts are evenly coated.
Store in a container in the fridge.
Any guesses yet? (If you think you know- don’t tell! 🙂 )
