The only thing I did differently from the original recipe was to use sliced raw almonds instead of toasted almonds. The salad turned out beautifully. It was very simple and fresh. I love the simpleness of the dressing, I will be using it again in the future on other salads. The flavor of the brussels sprout leaves was nice and mild from the blanching and paired well with the arugula and endive. I highly recommend this recipe!
