Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad // This brussels sprouts salad is INSANELY good. It’s super simple and really quick to throw together. | Tried and TastyThe last time I had Brussels sprouts before recently was last year when my husband and I were doing our 30 day juice fast. We juiced them. Crazy right? I wasn’t entirely a fan of them juiced but for 30 days you’re bound to need to get creative and switch things up. Plus they are healthy little suckers. Growing up I my mom never served them (to which I was grateful). When I saw this recipe however on Shutterbean [LOVE that site!], I knew I needed to give the sprouts another chance. This salad is INSANELY good. I’m talking.. take the bowl away from me or I’m going to eat it all in one sitting.. kind of good. It’s super simple and really quick to throw together. The only “odd” ingredient that you probably don’t have on hand are the Brussels sprouts. So add these to the grocery list because this is definitely worth making!

Ingredients

  • 24 Brussels sprouts washed & chopped or shredded
  • 1/2 c. Parmigiano-Reggiano finely grated
  • 1 c. walnuts chopped & lightly toasted
  • 1/2 c. sliced almonds chopped & lightly toasted
  • 1/2 c. + 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a large lemon
  • 3 tbsp. apple cinder vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Chop or shred the Brussels sprouts in a food processor, with a mandolin (which I never seem to have luck with) or chop with a knife. Toss the sprouts in a large bowl, top with toasted walnuts, almonds & grated cheese.
  2. In a small jar, mix together your dressing ingredients: olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and mustard. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Put a lid on the jar and shake vigorously until well mixed. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir thoroughly.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
When toasting the walnuts and almonds I chose to do that in my toaster oven on the broil setting. If you chose to toast them that way as well, my only warning is that they will brown FAST so keep an eye on them or you will end up with burnt nuts. No one wants that and by that time you'll be itching to dig in to this salad and will want to dive in already. I would say it only takes maybe 3-4 minutes - but just watch closely.
[More of My 2 Cents]
This salad is best served immediately, because after a while it will get soggy. If you happen to have leftovers it's still great the next day but best the first day! I wouldn't store longer than an extra day.

    i love this recipe and have passed it on! I added wheat berries and a little organic sugar to take the tartness away. Wonderful!

    1. Yvonne

      Oh yay! So you added whole wheat berries? Like what you grind into wheat flour? Wasn’t it hard to bite down on?? I’m so curious!

    I was just looking at the brussel sprouts package at Costco a couple of days ago because I was craving them, but my kids are not fans so I would be eating them by myself all week and I didn’t pick them up. I think my kids would LOVE them this way in a salad! I am stopping on my way home to pick them up. :) I think I will make full recipe, but only put half dressing on half of the salad and the 2nd half will be ready to quickly toss together a couple days later when we are ready for more. You were reading my craving mind – thanks for the fun recipe!

      Dressing only half of it is an excellent idea, then you won’t have to worry about it getting wilty before you are able to enjoy it all! I hope you like it, I LOVED it!
