Recipe Ingredients

BRUSSELS SPROUTS – Shredded brussels sprouts are easy to find bagged in the produce section, or simply shred them with a box grater (see below).

CABBAGE – Switch up the cabbage colors by using a blend of green and purple.

FRESH HERBS – Cilantro and mint accent the mild flavors of the veggies, but a little bit of chopped green or red apples give the salad some sweet crunch.

EXTRAS – Even broccoli or cauliflower florets can be added for more texture! Pistachios offer a hearty crunch but walnuts or pecans can be used, too! Even a bacon topping will add another crunchy dimension of flavor!

Best Slaw Dressing

This easy, vinegar-based dressing is easily whisked together in minutes and has a citrusy burst of lime that complements the veggies and pistachios. Add some ground mustard or garlic powder for a stronger tasting dressing.

How To Make Shredded Brussels Sprout Slaw

Super easy salads are fun to make, and this one just has two steps to prepare it:

  1. In a large bowl toss shredded vegetables with herbs & shelled pistachios.
  2. Whisk dressing and toss into salad. Chill at least one hour before serving.

How to Shred Brussel Sprouts

Choose brussels sprouts that are free of bruised or torn leaves. Rinse and pat them dry.

With a Knife: Trim the stems. Cut them in half vertically and slice across the horizontal edges in small strips.

With a Food Processor: Trim off the stems and place sprouts in a food processor. Shred with the slicing attachment.

With a Box Grater: Shred each whole sprout against the grater, moving in one direction.

Recipe Tips and Tricks!

  • The best way to use nuts in any recipe is to sauté them in a dry skillet for a few minutes until they are lightly browned. This intensifies their flavor and makes them extra crunchy!
  • Using a bullet blender for the dressing emulsifies the ingredients and makes it extra creamy!
  • For a creamy dressing, add half an avocado to the dressing and blend on high until emulsified.
