I am a huge creature of habit. I find comfort in routines and to do lists. Why not let Carmel Kama’aina feel the same? Therefore “the Monday Reset” will now be a thing. Starting with one broccoli & brussels slaw with creamy lemon dressing, dried cranberries, and walnuts… coming right up!
For the sweet and creamy lemon dressing–
- 3 tbs nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest (this was an 1/8 of my lemon)
- 1/2 large lemon, juiced
- 2 tbs avocado oil (or olive)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tbs chopped shallot (this was one shallot sliver for me)
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp Dijon
Makes 2/3 cup
For the Slaw–
- 1/2 bag Trader Joe’s shaved brussels sprouts
- 1/2 bag Trader Joe’s organic broccoli slaw
- 1/2 cup dried fruit (I had cranberries)
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I had walnuts)
- Optional – parmesan for sprinkling
Serves 2 as an entree salad
- Make dressing first. Blend (or whisk with fork) all ingredients on low till combined.
- Throw all slaw ingredients in a big bowl, top with dressing, and you’re done!!
- Note- Greek yogurt has protein, but if you want an extra oomf I think this would be great with smoked salmon or grilled chicken or shrimp!
