Can you believe it’s Spring, already?
This delicious salad is perfect to make in a large batch. It will hold in the fridge for about a week without the dressing. Or, if you like to prep your meals for the week, you can also store the salad in individual containers and pack your dressing on the side.
Today’s recipe is:
Spring Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing
1 lb Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and shaved
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup roasted, salted almonds

2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/16 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
Salad: In a large bowl, combine the Brussels Sprouts, dried cranberries, almonds, and goat cheese.
Dressing: Combine the lemon juice, honey, Dijon mustard, oil, vinegar, onion powder, and salt in a blender. Mix until smooth. Add the poppy seeds and process just until combined. Place in a container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
