In The Kitchen...Brussel Sprout Salad....YUM!

This "In The Kitchen" recipe is inspired by a salad from one of my favorite restaurants here in NOLA, Sylvain. It is so simple, refreshingly healthy and a great salad option for a dinner party.

To make this delicious salad, you will need:

Brussel Sprouts (I used 8 for a salad for 2)
Gala/Fuji Apple
Almonds or Hazelnuts
Pecorino or Manchego Cheese

For Vinaigrette:
Olive Oil
Pear Infused Vinegar

First, I finely chop up the brussel sprouts like so...

 I mandoline an apple, then slice it up into bite size pieces like so... (I LUVS me my mandoline!!)

Then I chop up the almonds and grate the cheese and throw it all together in a bowl. I just eye ball everything, so for the vinaigrette, a tablespoon or so of honey, tablespoon of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil - toss it all together and bada bing bada boom - delicioso salad!!

Fresh cracked pepper on top, maybe some artisan bread on the side and ENJOY!!
