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.
