Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Pin It

As a kid, I did not like Brussels Sprouts. Nacho reminded me of this when I was preparing this salad. If you ask my mother, she would say that was most definitely the case. She would be happy to describe to you my facial grimaces and the shiver that went down my spine when she would make me finish my portion of the green little cabbages. 

Nowadays, my mom would be shocked to learn that I absolutely love them now—even raw, but the trick is to shave them (or slice thinly). My side kick (the littlest Bueno) took a short video while I was showing him how I cut the Brussels Sprouts.



Enjoy and Happy Weekend! xo, dana

    I was/am the same with brussels sprouts! Did not like them as a kid and even young adult, but love them now. Brussels sprouts — one of the things PAB and my Ma bonded over, and shared. Although not vegetarian, I enjoy a shaved brussels sprouts salad with an aged white cheddar, bacon, and peanuts. Will try your combo soon! Jen xo
