Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Parmesan
Author: 
Serves: 6
 
This is a very tasty way to increase your intake of cruciferous (cabbage family) vegetables. If your diet is dairy-free, then simply omit the parmesan and adjust the salt to taste.
Ingredients
  • ½ small red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • Salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts, shaved or thinly sliced
  • ½ cup finely grated parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, honey, mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified. Set aside.
  2. Trim all of the Brussels sprouts, slice thinly or use slicing blade of a food processor. Use your fingers to gently separate the leaves so that the shredded sprouts resemble a very fine slaw.
  3. Put the sprouts into the bowl with dressing and toss gently with the onions. Fold in the parmesan, taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve immediately.
