I'm in need of some greeeeens. I've been going hard on the cookie dough situation and need a moment to detox before I get back into the cookies. So I'm keeping it pretty light but festive today before we get into some really decadent recipes next week. Get excited. Things are going to look real festive in the What's Gaby Cooking world. But first - let's be festive with this Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad!  Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad from www.whatsgabycooking.com (@whatsgabycookin)

Have you guys ever had raw Brussels Sprouts? They're ah-mazing. Trust me. Don't be nervous. I mean, they are incredible roasted and sautéed, but raw... it's a whole new playing field.  These are sliced SUPER thin and then tossed together with candied walnuts, shaved parmesan cheese and avocados! You can do it on a mandolin, in a food processor or with a good old fashion knife! Any way you cut it, just make sure they are super thin. I shoved as many super foods in the recipe as possible because hello, I was on a cookie diet last week.

Let's get into it!

  1. Hi Gaby,
    Absolutely Loved the salad. And I didn't think I would like persimmons. I might just be missing it but do you have a share link somewhere on your site? Would be nice to be able to share to friends as I brag about this.

  2. If I wanted to do this recipe for a week of meal prep how would you recommend the avocado? I thought about making a batch of chunky guac, do you think that would work?

  3. 5 stars
    I am way late to the game on this one! It is absolutely incredible!!! Everyone loved it, and we could eat this weekly!

    We did fumble around with the mandolin for 10 minutes before giving up and using a knife to slice the Brussel sprouts. But that’s 100% user error…

    Thanks for helping us ring in 2022 with a great salad!
