Root Vegetable & Brussels Sprouts Salad

Root Vegetables & Brussels Sprouts Salad

This is a simple chop salad. I chopped 1/2 parsnip and 2 carrots into matchsticks. I added 2 TBSP of red onions, 5 brussels sprouts, chopped, 1 apple cored and chopped and 2 TBSP of chopped fresh parsley. I added some salt and pepper, 1 TBSP of walnut oil and the fresh-squeeze juice of 1/2 a lemon. I let the flavors marry overnight and ate the next day. It was a crisp, crunchy mix of heat from the radishes and onions with sweetness from the carrots and apples and hearty umame from the parsley and brussels sprouts and that special bright tartness of parsnips. With its crunchiness, it makes a great snack for late night TV watching.
