FESTIVE TURKEY, APPLE AND RAW SPROUT SALAD
Time to make: < 10 Minutes. Makes: 2 portions.
10 Brussel Sprouts, de stalked and outer leaves removed
1 Kanzi Apple
Cooked Turkey Breast, shredded
1 Shallot, finely diced
4tbsp Olive Oil
4tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1tbsp Lemon Juice
½ tsp Whole Grain Mustard
Bunch of Coriander
25g Dried Cranberries
50g Walnuts, chopped
Combine together your olive oil and apple cider vinegar by whisking together in a glass or pouring into a bottle, closing the lid and shaking till combined.
Shave your Brussels with a potato peeler, or finely slice with a knife. Be careful of your fingers, as it can be quite fiddly!
Finely dice your shallot and place in a bowl with your shaved Brussels. Pour half of your olive oil and apple cider mixture and mix to fully combine. Leave for around 5 minutes to soften.
Roughly chop your walnuts and place to the side. Chop your apple into small chunks and some slices and place to the side.
Add your coriander, stalks and all to a blender, add in your mustard and the rest of your olive oil/apple cider mixture and blend until fully mixed.
Split your sprouts and shallots mixture between two bowls. Top with your shredded turkey, chopped walnuts, apple and cranberries and pour over the dressing. Enjoy! If you want to take this to work, pour the dressing into a small bottle and place the walnuts in a small little bag and take with you. Pour over when you’re ready to eat to save the mixture going soggy and the nuts going soft.
