Searching for the best ever salad-ish side dish to make for Thanksgiving or any other occasion? Look no further friends..

This Kale + Brussels Sprout Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing is the ultimate healthy side dish to make with dinner. Or to enjoy as a salad base for a meal with some extra protein on top. It is so flavorful, takes 5 minutes to whip up and has the best crunch and textures going on thanks to all of the mix-in’s we use.

I first made this recipe as an easy salad recipe to keep on hand in the fridge for the week for Jordan’s lunch. He is on a serious salad kick right now and he loves having them for lunch everyday with hardboiled eggs or roasted chicken. And every week he is taking all of the contents out of fridge and making a huge mess trying to whip up his epic lunch salad. And when he tried it for lunch – he was obsessed.

Then I remembered how every time Thanksgiving rolls around, we are all looking for easy side dishes to make. Especially if you are like me and don’t actual prepare much for Thanksgiving, but still want to contribute something. This is the recipe you have been looking for. It is a crowd pleaser and goes so well with all the holiday staples.

What ingredients you need to make this Kale + Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing:

  • Organic shredded kale – I bought a bag at Trader Joe’s!
  • Shaved brussels sprouts – I bought a bag at Trader Joe’s!
  • Chopped pecans – I like using roasted ones for extra flavor but anything works or even another nut too
  • Raisins – I look for ones with no added sugar and seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cooked bacon – I recommend making bacon in oven. So easy and delish.
  • Shaved parmesan cheese to taste
  • Olive or avocado oil
  • Honey – I love this one – code RACHL for 25% off
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Dijon mustard

How to make this easy and healthy slaw recipe:

  1. Add the kale, brussels sprouts, pecans, raisins, pumpkin seeds, bacon, parm and salt and pepper together into a large bowl (the bigger the better) and toss well with tongs or a spatula
  2. In a small mason jar or, add the dressing ingredients together and shake well
  3. Add desired amount of dressing to the salad and massage well and mix together. I personally like to let the dressing marinate in the slaw a bit before eating so it is extra flavorful. Usually an hour or so.
  4. I also love to add some cooked chicken or a burger or salmon on top to make this a full meal

  1. Love this recipe! Subbed dried cranberries instead of raisins (personal preference) and let the dressing soak in for 20-30 mins and it was perfect!
