I’m in need of some greeeeens. I’ve been going hard on the cookie dough situation and need a moment to detox before I get back into the cookies. So I’m keeping it pretty light but festive today before we get into some really decadent recipes next week. Get excited. Things are going to look real festive in the What’s Gaby Cooking world. But first – let’s be festive with this Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad!  Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad from (@whatsgabycookin)

Have you guys ever had raw Brussels Sprouts? They’re ah-mazing. Trust me. Don’t be nervous. I mean, they are incredible roasted and sautéed, but raw… it’s a whole new playing field.  These are sliced SUPER thin and then tossed together with candied walnuts, shaved parmesan cheese and avocados! You can do it on a mandolin, in a food processor or with a good old fashion knife! Any way you cut it, just make sure they are super thin. I shoved as many super foods in the recipe as possible because hello, I was on a cookie diet last week.

Let’s get into it!

    Love this salad so much! Another thing I love about this salad is it stays crisp and fresh for days, that is if there are any leftovers!

  2. You can also buy shaved Brussel sprouts at Trader Joe’s if you have one close to you! Thanks for the recipe!!

    LOVED this recipe! Might be my favorite Gaby recipe. Perfect balance of textures, flavors and freshness. Already made it twice in a week! HIGHL:Y RECOMMEND!

    This salad is so beautiful! I’m not a huge fan of raw kale so I used a hearty artisanal lettuce. Perfect winter salad

  5. 5 stars
    This was totally delicious. I couldn’t find kale so I used regular salad greens. If I’d make one change it would simply be to add more pomegranate and candied nuts. Either way I gobbled this up 🙂

    Wow. This salad is incredible, it made me change my mind about what a salad could be. I didn’t have access to dinosaur kale so I used a hearty artisanal lettuce instead.

    So delicious – used garlic oil dressing instead of red wine vinegar and added goat cheese in addition to the parm. So good.

    Loved this salad! The dressing is perfect, the pomegranates added a wonderful pop of flavor and texture, and who doesn’t love Brussels sprouts?!

    I am way late to the game on this one! It is absolutely incredible!!! Everyone loved it, and we could eat this weekly!

    We did fumble around with the mandolin for 10 minutes before giving up and using a knife to slice the Brussel sprouts. But that’s 100% user error…

    Thanks for helping us ring in 2022 with a great salad!

  10. If I wanted to do this recipe for a week of meal prep how would you recommend the avocado? I thought about making a batch of chunky guac, do you think that would work?
