Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

We’re big fans of Brussels sprouts, and although we love our go-to recipes, when they’re in season and on sale, sometimes it’s good to switch things up a bit so we don’t get sick of them. Since Brussels sprouts are pretty much like mini cabbages, this is basically coleslaw.

I used my mandoline to slice up the sprouts and the shallots really thin. You can obviously use a knife if that’s all you have.


Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad
Serves 4 as a side


  • 12 oz. Brussels sprouts
  • 1 large shallot
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. Wash and dry the Brussels sprouts. Cut off the stem and peel away the outer leaves. Use a mandoline to slice them very thin. Set aside.
  2. Still using the mandoline, slice the shallot very thin and soak the slices in a bowl of water. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the mustard, honey, vinegar, salt, pepper and oil until emulsified.
  4. Drain the shallots and mix them with the Brussels sprouts. Pour dressing over the top and toss. Serve at room temperature or cold.
