Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Cranberries and Pecans

Living 600 miles away from my family means I don’t always get to spend the holidays with them.  Fortunately, mr’s family is close and I love them all to pieces so the sting of not being near my family is not nearly as tough.

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving during the summer.  I figured if I didn’t have a chance to be with them for the actual holiday we’d celebrate early.  Plus, I wanted the chance to collaborate with my ah-maze-ing, super talented, make me gain 20 lbs each time I visit, chef brother-in-law.

He helped me create all the Thanksgiving dishes I’m sharing with you this week and I couldn’t more grateful for his support!

This shaved brussels sprouts salad is something he created on a whim, as is much of the food he makes.  It will definitely be added to future menus.  It is so simple and fast that it’s a great dish to complement all the hustle and bustle in the kitchen on Thanksgiving day.  You could even make it ahead of time and serve it chilled.
