sesame brussels sprouts salad with sriracha vinaigrette

Let's ease into this week simply, shall we?

Do you get into food ruts? I definitely do - but the thing is, I totally don't mind them. I sort of love getting the same salad at Whole Foods every time I go. Avocado toast every single morning? I'm into it.

This salad is a twist on that food rut salad from Whole Foods, also known as the Cabbage Crunch Salad. I can't get enough of that thing. But then I swapped out the cabbage for brussels and threw in some sriracha and boom... a new lunch rut was born.

I think that's a good thing?

Sesame Brussels Sprouts Salad with Sriracha Vinaigrette
serves 2

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon sriracha
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 lb. brussels sprouts, shredded
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds, toasted

In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, honey, sriracha, mustard, and garlic. Add brussels sprouts, almonds, and sesame seeds to the bowl. Toss everything together to combine. Serve!
