Buckwheat And Brussels Sprout Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing is a great gluten-free meal-prep dish!
Are there any Brussels Sprouts lovers here? We get it, the vegetable is not very popular, but have you ever tried it raw in a salad?
Trust us, it’s good. It’s very different from the cooked or roasted vegetable, it’s fresh and crunchy, and makes a great salad base!
Meet our Buckwheat And Brussels Sprout Salad! It’s filling and light, crunchy and zingy with a delicious honey-mustard homemade dressing to bring the flavors together!
This time we combined the salad with some Mediterranean flavors, like prosciutto, feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and more!
This dish should be fairly easy to put together as it mostly uses pantry and fridge staples. But, bear in mind, this recipe is not vegan, though it focuses on plant-based ingredients.

- 200 grams buckwheat
- 500 grams brussel sprouts

Honey Mustard Dressing:
- 6 tbsp olive oil

- To a large bowl add sliced brussels sprouts, cooked buckwheat, toasted pine nuts, chopped prosciutto, and crumbled feta cheese. Slice or chop a pear, and add to the salad.
- Prepare salad dressing: put ingredients in a jar, close with a lid and shake it up, so the ingredients mix thoroughly.
- Drizzle the dressing over the salad, combine and serve.
