Shaved Brussel Sprout Slaw

Shaved Brussel Sprout Slaw is a fun twist on a classic, refreshing side dish. Shaved brussel sprouts are tossed together with dried cranberries, walnuts and a homemade honey mustard dressing. Toss it all together for a scrumptious, crunchy, sweet and vibrant slaw to have as a side dish.

How to Shave Brussel Sprouts

You may be thinking, “shaved brussel sprouts???” Yep! They are SO good! Slightly sweet and perfectly crunchy, shaved brussel sprouts are the perfect base for this slaw.

There’s a couple ways you can go about shaving brussel sprouts:

  • Do it yourself with a food processor
  • Purchase pre-shredded/shaved brussel sprouts

Whipping up a quick batch of shaved brussel sprouts in your food processor goes off without a hitch! I originally started shaving them by hand with a cheese grater until my mom reminded me of the food processor…I would have been there for awhile if she hadn’t haha! I prefer this method as you can get the brussel sprouts to the right consistency that you want.

Purchasing pre-shredded brussel sprouts is also an easy way to eliminate an extra step during the holiday season. I was able to find them in the produce section at my local grocery store, Target and Trader Joe’s. 

All Things Dressing

Making a homemade dressing for this slaw is definitely the way to go! When you make a homemade dressing, you are able to get an amount of flavor that is hard to get from a bottled dressing (but also no shame in the bottled dressing game.)

Here are the ingredients you need for this quick and easy dressing:

  • Dijon mustard
  • Honey
  • Shallot
  • White wine vinegar
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil

I love how the honey mustard dressing combines with the brussel sprouts, cranberries and walnuts for a side dish loaded with Fall flavor!

PS: my Harvest Apple Chopped Salad uses the same dressing and is another scrumptious, Fall side dish!

Tips for Making this Slaw

Not only is the flavor of this Shaved Brussel Sprout Slaw simply delicious, but it also comes together in a cinch!

Simply toss all of the ingredients together and you are ready to go. 

Not only that, this slaw gets better over time! Which makes it the perfect make-ahead recipe option for the holidays. Making it the day before and letting the brussel sprouts marinate in the dressing only amplifies the flavor. But, it can also be thrown together and served right away! 

Easily pack up and take this slaw as a side dish to a holiday gathering, or keep for yourself to munch on. 

Whether you are taking this Shaved Brussel Sprout Slaw as a side dish to a holiday gathering or whipping up a batch to have for your lunch throughout the week, it is bound to be fresh, crunchy and delicious!

PS: it also adds a fresh, vibrant side dish option to have on your Thanksgiving plate!

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Notes

  • You can either shave your own brussel sprouts using a food processor or purchase pre-shaved brussel sprouts.
