I combined two of my favorites Caesar Salad Dressing and raw brussels . I bought the bag of Shaved Brussels which took all the work out of having to cut them up and I made my salad dressing which is detailed below. I used shaved Parmagiano Reggiano Cheese to add some flavor and let it all marinate together for about an hour before serving. I like it a little wilted but of course it tasted kind of delicious right away. It is nice to be able to make salad a bit ahead of the meal without worrying about how wilted it will be. The Brussels are tough enough to stand up to anything and sit out for a while dressed. This is always perfect while you’re preparing the rest of your dinner.
I used a Food Processor -mini or regular. You can do it in a blender as well.
If you love Caesar Salad and you love Brussels Sprouts this one’s for you.

Brussels Caesar Salad
Caesar Salad : with Brussels
1 bag of shaved brussels sprouts — app. 1 lb.
2 cloves of garlic
1 egg yolk — if you don’t like the raw egg you can coddle it but I always just use a raw egg yolk
1 Tablespoon Dion Mustard- heaping
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
I use a food processor to make my salad dressing , you can use a mini or a regular sized one. I put the 2 cloves of whole garlic into the processor and chop them, then I add the 5 anchovies and mix all together.
Then add lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire Sauce and egg yolk. I mix all together and then slowly add the olive oil in from the top stream the oil in. Add freshly ground black pepper after everything else is incorporated. I don’t add salt because anchovies are very salty.
Pour dressing on the Brussels and mix well. Let it sit for an hour or so if you have the time. Add the cheese and mix well.
*this salad can easily be doubled or Just make double the salad dressing and you’ll have it if you need more dressing depending on how dressed you like the salad. Dressing can stay in fridge for a few days ( raw egg) .
