Shaved Brussels Salad

This is one of my most favorite salads. 7 Ingredients and you got this delicious shaved Brussel sprout salad. Perfect for a Holiday Meal and delish for lunch or dinner salad with an added 8th ingredient as Protein. I think I will make for Thanksgiving this year! You can prep hours in advance because the hearty sprouts will hold up well even if you dress them. Perfect for Holidays. You can put your own spin on it — I used cherries this time out but I think yellow raisins are perfect as well. I actually used finely diced walnuts because no pinolli nuts and wanted to eat it NOW! Even though so few ingredients this salad hits all the flavors and is very delicious and Joel loved it and took seconds!


*this should serve 4-6 as a side salad


4 Cups shaved Brussels sprouts — I bought a bag of shaved Brussels from Trader Joes but you can find this almost everywhere or shave yourself in food processor ( just easier to short cut this step)

1/4 cup EVOO

1/4 cup fresh Lemon Juice (probably one regular sized Lemon)

1/3 cup dried cherries, golden raisins, dark raisins, etc. Use what you have in the house it’s all good!

1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted — I would also use finely diced walnuts which worked out perfectly– these also come in a bag ready to use

1/2 cup pecorino cheese, if you don’t like cheese you can omit it’s optional but in our house a necessary ingredient — crumbled feta would also be a good alternative

1/3 cup chopped fresh chives — a must for flavor

Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Place Shaved Brussels sprouts in a large bowl ( large enough to mix) and toss with the olive oil and lemon juice, pine nuts, dried fruit, pecorino cheese, chives and a few pinches of kosher salt ( taste for flavor)

I let the salad sit at room temp for at least 15 minutes, then mix well , taste and adjust the seasonings. If tastes dry to you add a little drizzle of olive oil — I didn’t

Enjoy! and Your Welcome

*and obviously if you’d like add a protein to make this a perfect lunch or dinner salad

  2. Sounds yummy! I haven’t tried Pecorino cheese, but I’m wondering if a shaved Manchego would be nice too. Thanks for sharing — I have a bag of brussels just begging me to do something.
