The key to cutting your brussel sprouts easily is to have a very sharp knife. First, cut off the ends and toss them. Then carefully slice the sprouts as thinly as possible. You don’t want to have big chunks in your salad.

What kind of mustard do I use for the dressing?

Any mustard of your choice! I have used yellow and Dijon so far and both taste amazing.

Can I make this in advance?

Yes, this keeps overnight very well if you do not put the dressing on it. Just leave the mixture in a baggie or other air tight container.

Do I have to use almonds?

No, you can use any type of nut you’d like. I personally think walnuts would go great. Or you could totally skip nuts altogether.
