Shaved Brussel Sprouts Salad is an easy fun way to switch up serving them. A light salad made with thinly shaved Brussel sprouts, apple slices, slivered almonds, & a dijon mustard dressing. Vegan, Gluten Free, Easy.
Okay, so first off I must admit that “I love Brussel sprouts.”
Whether served in this fun salad or these easy pan seared Brussel Sprouts…
They just happen to be one of my favorite veggies. So eating them raw in a salad seemed like the next best thing to do
And I’M here to tell you it won’t disappoint!
The fresh vibrant flavors of the dijon viniagrette pair perfectly with this salad.
INGREDIENTS FOR SHAVED BRUSSEL SPROUTS SALAD
- Brussel Sprouts
- Slivered Almonds
- Salad Dressing- olive oil, dijon mustard
HOW TO SHRED BRUSSEL SPROUTS
I find the easiest way is by using a mandolin slicer. Just make sure to remove the outer leaves and wash them prior to shredding.
Another way is with a food processor using the slicing attachment.
But if you don’t have either tools you can just thinly slice them using a sharp knife.
Whatever method you use always make sure to wash them and remove outer leaves first.
CAN SHAVED BRUSSEL SPROUTS SALAD BE MADE AHEAD
YES… you can make this salad a couple days in advance. I would hold off adding the nuts though prior to serving so they maintain their crunch…
Also taste for salt & pepper right before serving.
The salad develops more flavor after the dressing has had time to blend with it a couple hours in advance.
It will keep well in a covered container in the fridge for about 2-3 days.
ADDITIONAL ADD INS OR SUBSTITUTIONS
You can substitute the slivered almonds with any other thinly sliced nuts or seeds…
Such as sliced almonds, sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds.
Dried fruits- cranberries
Cheese- shredded parmesan, soft goat cheese or feta cheese crumbles
