Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad – Barefeet in the Kitchen

Crisp sweet apples, chewy cranberries or raisins, crunchy pecans and onion, and extra-sharp cheddar cheese are tossed with shaved Brussels sprouts before being drizzled with a tangy-sweet vinaigrette to create the ultimate Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

I first tried a shaved Brussels sprouts salad at the airport quite a few years ago. My jaw dropped that raw Brussels sprouts could be so very delicious.

Since then, I’ve ordered a Brussels Sprouts salad just about every time one pops up on a restaurant menu.

There is simply some irresistible about that extra bit of vegetable crunch. This salad is everything I’ve loved best about all of those restaurant salads. It’s a winning combination of all the best flavors and textures!

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad Recipe

This salad is loaded with crunch and flavor from Brussels sprouts, apples, pecans, and onions. Most of the time I make this salad with golden raisins, but it’s equally delicious with dried cranberries – and I often do a bit of each when I have them on hand.

Just a bit of shaved or crumbled extra-sharp cheddar or parmesan cheese will add another layer of flavor to the mix. Lastly, you’ll toss the salad with a tangy-sweet honey and apple cider vinaigrette.

I typically make this salad right before I want to serve it, but it can also be prepped in advance and then tossed with the dressing just before serving.

If you happen to be lucky enough to have some of the salad leftover, the crunchy Brussels and apples will keep nicely for about 24-48 hours, even after being tossed with the vinaigrette.

The salad might not look quite so colorful or pretty the next time you eat it, but it will still be very tasty!

Brussels Sprouts and Apples

My love for Brussels Sprouts began with this recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples. The combination of flavors is just fantastic.

If you’d told me 20 years ago that Brussels Sprouts would someday be one of my favorite vegetables, I wouldn’t have believed you.

Over the years though, I’ve come to love so many Brussels Sprouts Recipes!

Salads are one of the all-time most versatile meals out there. Like soup, salad can be a one-dish meal with the potential to cover all the basic food groups. 

When I figured out How to Eat Salad Every Day (and actually like it!) a few years ago, it was a bit of a game-changer.

Ever since then, I’ve been prepping salads on the weekend to enjoy as easy lunches through the week. Southwestern Steak Salad and the Southwest Chicken Salad are a couple of my favorites along with the classic Taco Salad that I make on a regular basis.

Some of our favorite side dish salads are the The Best Ramen Noodle Salad and Southern Style Coleslaw are both long-time favorites for barbecues and get-togethers.
