  • 1 cup brussels sprouts - shaved
  • 1 cup walnuts - roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 apple - chopped

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp finely minced shallot
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds - toasted


  1. Combine all of the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss to mix.
  2. Make dressing by adding dressing ingredients to a small bowl or jar and mixing well with a whisk. Toss salad with dressing to coat. Note: To toast sesame seeds, simply add them to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir them frequently to prevent burning and cook until golden brown.
