Brussels Sprout Apple Salad

A camp plate with a salad containing sliced apples, walnuts, and shredded cheese.

Want to eat salad all year round? This winter-style salad uses brussels sprouts and apples to create a fresh set of flavors, using seasonal produce in the cooler months. The dressing is scratch-made also with a honey sweetener.

Although initially skeptical, the brussels sprouts worked well as a new spin to cabbage-based slaws which taste similar. The nuts and cheese balanced out the tastes and textures. 

Feel free to make substitutions with ingredients available the walnuts may be substituted for pecans or slithered almonds. The white cheddar works well but can be exchanged with Parmesan or Pecorino.
