I came across this recipe on Shutter Bean for a shredded Brussels sprouts salad. I just thought it was so unique for a salad. Not the same old salad greens.
Step 1: You need to blanch the sprouts in boiling water for about 2-3 minutes, and then put them into an ice water bath to stop the cooking.
Step 2: I used my food processor with the slicing attachment to make coleslaw-like shreds. Meanwhile, I had some red onions slices soaking in the cold water (that was the only thing I added different to this recipe). This helps to reduce the bitter and sour flavor.
Step 3: Make your dressing: Olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
Step 4: Add some toasted walnuts, the onions, dressing, and shaved Parmesan cheese.
It was so tasty–made me feel like I was eating a gourmet side dish! If you don’t like Brussels sprouts, you could still give this a try because since they are shredded, they are much more mild.
