To cut back on prep time, you can buy Brussels sprouts and red cabbage pre-shredded at the store. If you want to do it yourself grab a mandolin to help make this chore a bit easier. You’ll get even, thin slices of crunchy veggies in a snap.

For a bit of texture, we added chopped walnuts, apples, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds to the mix. You can use any variation of nuts or seeds you have on hand to jazz things up. We used Fuji apples, but you could also use Granny Smith apples to add a hint of tartness to the mix.

The dressing is a simple combination of honey, ground mustard, and walnut oil. We used walnut oil for its nutty taste, but you could use extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil in a pinch.

To bring your Brussels sprouts and apple slaw together, simply mix everything and toss with the dressing. Let the slaw sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors marry. You can also make this ahead of time – it stores well in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
