Simply shave and roast the Brussels sprouts, thinly slice the apples, then toss with your favorite vinaigrette alongside cranberries, pistachios and freshly grated parmesan. This recipe pairs well classic Thanksgiving main dishes like turkey and stuffing. Tossed in a vinaigrette, it’s a lighter salad dressing option featuring heart-healthy oil instead.
