Bacon, Avocado, and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Hey y’all! Sorry for the late post – it’s been a busy week. I found this recipe from Tasty and it’s a new fave! The first time I did it without avocado because I didn’t have any and it was too vinegar-y. So make sure to have the fat from the avos in there!

The original recipe is added above but I made some changes based on preference.

Ingredients
for 4 servings

SALAD

  • 20 brussels sprouts, shaved
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked

LEMON VINAIGRETTE

  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil

Preparation

  1. Cook bacon to however you like it.
  2. Slice the stems off the Brussels sprouts and cut each one in half, then thinly slice. Transfer the shaved sprouts to a medium bowl and break apart with your hands.
    • side note – I tried to use a mandolin for this and 100% cut my thumb. So be careful!
  3. To prepare the vinaigrette, pour lemon juice into a mason jar (or bowl). You can use lemons but I ain’t got time for that so I used the pre-juiced juice.
  4. Add the mustard, oregano, pepper, and salt.
  5. If you are using a jar, add the olive oil, put jar lid on and shake! If you are using a bowl, slowly add the olive oil while continuing to whisk until evenly blended.
  6. Slice the avocado and remove the pit, then dice.
  7. Dice onion.
  8. In a large bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, avocado, bacon, and onions.
  9. Pour the dressing evenly over the salad.
  10. Toss thoroughly until well mixed.
  11. Enjoy!

It is a little carb-y from the brussels but it’s fine 🙂
