This recipe is from Sweden however, this salad is not just for Swedes, way to yummy! My friend, Elin Skarp, shares this amazingly delicious recipe with us, seriously I made this for Christmas just a couple of days later. For those who aren't fans of brussel sprouts, be open to trying this salad, so easy to make, even easier to eat.

Elin is an amazing cook and amazing Swedish gal. She didn't hesitate when I asked her if she would share some of her favorite recipes for Christmas. I was so excited to make this salad with her in her kitchen - yes, she is part of my pademic circle.
