This Brussels sprouts salad recipe is made with a lemon basil vinaigrette, so it’s super refreshing and complements the flavors of the Brussels sprouts perfectly. It’s a great salad to pack for work, and the sauce makes the salad feel super fresh no matter when you decide to enjoy it.

The almonds help add some extra crunch, but you can always replace them with something similar like walnuts or even chia seeds. And don’t limit the vinaigrette just to your salads – it’s a great dip for your chips and pita bread.
