Virtual Vegan Potluck: Brussels Sprout Citrus Slaw


Hello Virtual Vegan Potluckers! 
This is a virtual potluck that connects like-minded foodies and bloggers for a worldwide eating and drinking celebration.
I hope you enjoy this side dish I made for the occasion.










Brussels Sprout Citrus Slaw
vegan, serves 4 to 6 as a side dish
adapted from la vida saporita

12-16 raw Brussels Sprouts, chopped (toss the cores)
1 pear, peeled and chopped
1 apple, peeled and chopped
A handful of raw walnuts
A handful of raw pumpkin seeds
A handful of pitted dates, chopped
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste










Wash, peel and chop all your fruits and vegetables
Steam the brussels sprouts for 2 minutes (either in a steamer or in the microwave with a bit of water)
Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and toss
Chill until ready to serve


That's it! Pretty easy. I had this with a peanut tofu wrap. I may or may not have had a chocolate chip cinnamon roll for dessert, too!
