- 1 lb raw Brussel Sprouts
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 3-4 tbsp olive oil
- Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
This brussel sprout salad recipe is so incredibly easy with very few ingredients however it is such an elegant dish. I would happily serve this at a dinner party but it also works great along side an Italian dish. I served this brussel sprout salad recipe next to my Baked Chicken Parmesan w/Homemade Marinara (recipe coming tomorrow.)
Feel free to add in mix ins of your preference, toasted pine nuts or dried cranberries would be an excellent choice. (The health nut in me is about to be angry but you can also add in bacon bits – bacon and brussel sprouts go together so well, but omit the word healthy from the title of this brussel sprout salad recipe if you do!)
Directions for my Delicious & Healthy Brussel Sprout Salad Recipe
Wash and slice the ends off of your brussel sprouts. Chop brussel sprouts as finely as possible being careful not to cut yourself in the process! Toss chopped raw brussel sprouts into a large bowl with 3-4 tbsp of the finest olive oil you can get your hands on (or y’know, whatevers on sale.) Squeeze the juice of one lemon into your brussel sprout salad being careful not to let any seeds fall in. Grate fresh parmesan into your salad, you can use as much or as little as your heart desires.
Not only is this brussel sprout salad recipe light and delicious, it’s also very nutritious. I talk a lot about the health benefits of brussel sprouts in my Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts Recipe.
