Easy brussels sprout slaw


Easy brussels sprout slaw

Honestly, the title say's it all.  This super delicious slaw is about as easy as it gets.  It is full of very healthy ingredients, no salt added, and I used maple syrup to sweeten the dressing.
I hope you give this one a try, and make it often.


Ingredients

1 lb. fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed and cleaned
2 large carrots, peeled
2 heads of endive, cleaned
1/2 cup raisins (optional, but really good)

For the dressing

1 medium zucchini, peeled and cut up
1 medium carrot
1 cup cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup maple syrup
juice of 2 limes (try and use fresh)



Using the shredder on your food processor, shred the brussels sprouts, carrots, endive.
Put into a large bowl (you may need to do these separate, just dump into your bowl after each ingredient.  Using your hands, toss the ingredient together to mix.  Add the raisins, and toss again.  
In the same food processor, or blender, combine all the ingredients for the dressing. (use the s blade) Blend until smooth.  I like it a little chunky, but you can blend until smooth. 


Pour over the slaw mix, and with tongs, blend well.  Take a few minutes to do this, so it is well mixed.  



Cover and chill for a couple of hours.  

Uncover and mix again well.  Serve with any dish you want.  :)
