Description

Lemony Brussels sprouts salad is the fresh and crunchy dish your winter meal needs. You can make it with or without oil. You only need 3 ingredients to make it!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (500 g) Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons (22 mL) avocado oil or olive oil
  • fine sea salt & pepper to taste

Embellishment Ideas

  • Vegan Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped toasted nuts or seeds
  • Pomegranate arils
  • Finely chopped dried cranberries or cherries

Instructions

  1. Using a very sharp knife, thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. Use your fingers to separate the shreds.
  2. Place the shredded sprouts into a large bowl of ice water. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
  3. Drain the sprouts and place in a salad spinner. Spin the sprouts until they are completely dry. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Using a microplane, finely grate 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of zest from the lemon. Squeeze enough juice from the lemon to measure 1 and 1/2 tablespoons.
  5. Place the oil, lemon zest and lemon juice in a small jar. Cover and shake, vigorously, until combined. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
  6. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Serve!

Notes

Storage: Although best served immediately, the dressed salad will keep stay crisp in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Oil-Free Options: (1) Avocado–Replace the oil with 3 tablespoons mashed, ripe avocado. I recommend mashing the avocado on a cutting board with a fork. Keep mashing until the avocado is completely smooth (or as close to it as possible). Stir the mashed avocado, lemon zest and lemon juice together in a small bowl until blended. Pour over the salad and toss to coat; (2) Full-fat Canned Coconut Milk–Replace the oil with 2 tablespoons well-stirred, full-fat canned coconut milk.
