This is seriously one of my FAVORITE salads to make! It doesn’t even have to be the holidays, but isn’t it so pretty for Christmas? The red and green is so festive. This salad is super easy and can be prepped ahead, so it is great for parties. I use a bottled dressing made with Greek yogurt so it is healthier, but super easy. If you can’t find it, you can use your favorite honey mustard dressing or make your own!
I typically shred my own Brussels sprouts because I love when they are super thin. You can buy pre shredded sprouts at so many grocery stores now too, if you don’t want to shred your own. I use my OXO handheld mandoline. It makes it super easy and it really doesn’t take that long. I have also used my slicing blade on my food processor as well, which works great! I typically buy my pomegranate seeds already removed from the pomegranate. It’s just much less messy, but they can be a bit pricy. Feel free to buy a whole pomegranate as well. This dish will look great on that Christmas table!
