Shredded Brussels Sprouts, Kale, and Apple Salad
This shredded Brussels sprouts, kale, and apple salad is quick and easy to make!
It's full of crunchy bits (apple and toasted walnuts) and savory bits (olive oil massage kale and shredded parmesan). It's a wonderful green salad that makes an excellent side dish!
I used a delicious Honeycrisp apple for this recipe. This fall's apples have been wonderful! I love them as a snack, but in a salad they offer such a crisp, flavorful bite. The key is getting them thin enough that they don't overwhelm the salad. To do this, I used my trusty mandoline (I'm linking the one I have below). I love the consistency I get when I use it - it's perfect for stir-fry recipes or anything else you want to chop up a bunch of veggies for. I used it to shred the Brussels sprouts as well!
I'm going to try to post a few more recipes this week, but with Thanksgiving coming up, I might be less prolific than usual. I hope you've got some fun plans to either celebrate with family or have a Friendsgiving!

And, of course, if you have any leftover turkey, I'd recommend any of these easy recipes for leftover turkey.

Here's the mandoline I used to make this salad (mine is red, but I like the black as well)! I also have these cut protection gloves because I slashed my fingers one too many times on the mandoline (sometimes I zone out when I get into the rhythm of slicing - yikes!). My husband got me these gloves and they've been awesome!
