Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

A simple and delicious Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

I’m in need of some greeeeens. I ate my weight in gravy this past week. And stuffing. And countless other calorie heavy items. So I’m keeping it light this weekend before I start with the full on Christmas Cookie/Baking extravaganza that’s coming to the blog next week. Oh yeah, it’s starting. Get excited.

In the interim, I’m shredding some Brussels and tossing them together with cranberries and avocados so I can shove as many super foods in my mouth at one time and feel a little better about putting on a pair of yoga pants. I signed up for a month long intensive pilates class, and to be totally honest, I’m scared to death to put on my yoga pants and skin tight tops and make my first appearance in class tomorrow. It could be a seriously horrifying experience.

  1. I LOVE this salad. So light and fresh, as well as pretty! Just made it and it was absolutely delicious!!

  2. so i reeeeally want to make this for my family, but i need help with one thing. is there any other option for the dressing which does not include vinegar in it. a member of my family has a gag reflex to anything flavored with vinegar. thank you so much, in advance. 🙂

    1. Hey! There actually isn’t any vinegar in the dressing – just lemon juice. Is that okay for your family member?

  3. Gaby, I know this recipe is old by now, but I have to tell you how much I love it. I modify it by leaving out the cheese (I hate, hate, cheese… I know, who am I?), but add gala apples and toasted almonds. It’s amazing. I eat it about once a week and even my husband asks for it regularly. THANK YOU! xo

  4. Hi Gaby,

    This question is one following what a previous Kristen asked about cooking the brussel sprouts before cutting.
    I had the salad as the directions were listed on your site and it was great ! I usually prefer brussel sprouts cooked as to raw. I was wondering if I lightly steamed the sprouts, if it would ruin the salad ?

    Thanks !

    1. Hey Kristen! it would certainly change the flavor profile of the dish. They are delicious raw… but you could saute them if you want 🙂 That would be delish!
