Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad or is it a Slaw?

Brussels Sprout Salad or Slaw by Carole's Chatter

I am always trying to find new ways to use Brussels Sprouts.  In this Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad they are used raw – which has to be good for you, right?  And I think that most people wouldn't even realise they were eating them but would think it was a sort of coleslaw.

This is how I did it.  I took the stalk and outside leaf off each sprout and then sliced it finely.  I did mine by hand.

I added some lightly cooked onion and garlic – not too much and also added the olive oil it was cooked in.

Then I added ¼ of a diced red capsicum (bell pepper).

Then salt and pepper to taste.

A splash of apple cider vinegar and a small amount of mayo and it was done.

I think it is best to mix it up and leave if in the fridge for at least an hour for the flavours to meld.

  3. Thank you. Brussel sprouts is my husbands favorite vegetable. Lord knows I've tried a zillion different ways to make it over the years - but - never raw or in a salad. I can't wait to try it.

  6. I'm not a fan of Brussels sprouts, but this way of preparing them does sound good: I must try it.
