We trade lettuce or cabbage to lay our chicken, radish, scallions, clementine and almonds on a bed of shredded Brussels sprouts. Pack salad and dressing separately and toss together when ready to eat.
1 lb Brussels sprouts, damaged outer leaves discarded, ends trimmed and shredded using a food processor (TIP:When processing Brussels sprouts, the "S"-shaped blade tends to work better than the shredding disk.)
12 oz (2 1/2 packed cups) shredded or chopped cooked chicken breast
6 to 8 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
6 scallions, thinly sliced
4 clementines or tangerines, peeled and sectioned
1/4 cup toasted sliced unsalted almonds
3 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp reduced sodium tamari
1 1/2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp safflower oil
1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil (NOTE: Toasted sesame oil is also referred to as Asian sesame oil.)
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
To a large bowl, add Brussels sprouts, chicken, radishes, scallions, clementines and almonds. Toss to combine. (MAKE AHEAD: Step One can be prepared up to 2 days in advance; refrigerate in an airtight container.)
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, tamari, honey, safflower oil and sesame oil until combined. Whisk in ginger. (MAKE AHEAD: Dressing can be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container or jar.) Pour over salad and toss well.
Bitter arugula’s got bite, but late-summer peaches and a citrusy maple dressing hit the sweet notes to give this seasonal salad the perfect balance of flavors. If taking this salad to go, store the dressing in a separate container and toss with the salad when you’re ready to eat.
Brussels sprouts are often paired with smoky bacon, but here we’ve created an amazing bacon-like flavor using a sneaky seasoning mix and shiitake mushrooms. Served over roasted Brussels sprouts and apples, this makes a memorable dish at the holiday table.
Spirals of zucchini and carrot are a lighter and lower-carb alternative to grain-based noodles. Here, they are tossed with a spicy mango and avocado dressing and topped with chicken and crunchy cashews.
