Shaved Brussels Sprout and Apple Salad

December 05, 2018

 

Raw Brussels sprouts, like cabbage, are hearty enough to hold up under just about any combination of flavors — they’re wonderful shaved and dressed like a slaw or a green salad. And disguised as a lettuce, they may be more appealing to the sproutophobes in your family (who may not even notice they’re eating them).

Here we’ve tossed them with crunchy apples, sweet-tart dried cranberries, tangy chèvre, and a zippy Cranberry Vinaigrette that’s full of honey and bright, puckery lemon. It’s a simple salad, flavorful yet mild and balanced — with the fruits and honey providing ballast for all the bigger flavors. It’s also versatile: You could start your holiday meal with it, or you could top it with leftover turkey and call it luncheon.

Our tip: Use a mandolin or your food processor to shave the Brussels sprouts. Or, better yet, save yourself some time and pick up a bag of shaved Brussels sprouts in our produce department!
