Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

Makes 4 servings.

I sometimes serve this versatile salad as a first course, as a side dish or as a salad. I also recommend that you slice it with a mandolin in order to be able to shave it (cut very thin slices). I let this dish rest for a few hours and even overnight.


  • 10 large Brussels sprouts


  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 -3 tablespoon orange juice
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup blanched almonds, toasted, very coarsely chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Trim and remove outer leaves of Brussels sprouts.
  2. Holding the stem of each Brussels sprout, use a mandolin to shave thinly the Brussels sprouts.
  3. Place in a bowl.
  4. Combine lemon juice, orange juice and olive oil.  
  5. Toss the salad with the dressing. Add parsley and almonds.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Before serving season to taste.
