If you’ve never used raw Brussels sprouts in a salad before, you’ve seriously been missing out! These little mighty veggies are the star of this salad and are so delicious when they’re thinly shaved. They have a similar taste to a kale or cabbage which just goes so nicely with the other ingredients in the salad. So if you’re curious about using Brussels sprouts in a salad, today’s the day my friends!
A few notes on this recipe:
I use a mandoline to shave my Brussels sprouts, fennel and onion. You can alternatively just use a sharp knife to slice these thinly, (though this will take more time) or use a shredding attachment on a food processor. Whichever method you choose, you definitely want to make sure to shave the Brussels sprouts nice and thin! You can alternatively buy pre-shredded Brussels sprouts, which you can find in many grocery stores.
If you’d like to make this salad into more of a meal you can add in some chickpeas, lentils or even some quinoa to make it a little more substantial. You can also add in any dried fruits or other nuts you love! I’m sure dried cranberries or toasted pumpkin seeds would make a delicious addition!
If you’d like to prep this salad in advance, Prepare all the ingredients and store them covered in a large bowl. Dress the salad only when you are ready to serve it.
