Meet your new favorite fall salad! Shaved Brussels sprouts combined with peppery arugula, crunchy bell peppers and sweet apples. To add a sweet, festive touch, we have dried cranberries and raisins, and a handful of nutty walnuts and a sprinkle of crumbled feta are the finishing touches.

Prepare the honey-citrus dressing. In a small bowl or mason jar, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider, honey, garlic, salt, pepper and sumac (if using.) Set aside for now.
Shave brussels sprouts. First, cut the stem and remove any bad leaves. Give the brussels sprouts a good rinse and dry. Now, to shave them, you can use a food processor fitted with a slicing attachment. Add the brussels sprouts and pulse until thinly sliced (you can also just use a knife to thinly slice brussels sprouts. Read the post above for more tips.)
Rinse shredded brussels sprouts and drain very well (use a salad spinner if you need to.)
Assemble the shaved brussels sprouts salad. Place shaved brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add baby arugula, bell peppers, shallots, and apple slices. Give the dressing a little whisk and pour over the salad, mix to combine. Add feta cheese, walnut hearts, raisins and cranberries. Give the salad another gentle mix. Enjoy!
Make-ahead tip: You can trim, shred, rinse, and dry the Brussels sprouts a night in advance. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge. You can also make the dressing and keep it in a Mason jar. When you're ready to use it, give it a good shake to recombine all the ingredients.
For best flavor: Once you add the dressing, it's a good idea to let this salad rest for about 20 minutes before serving it. This allows the flavors to meld.
