Here’s a quick, healthy salad to make with Brussels sprouts, your favorite mini cabbage.

While there’s almost nothing better than roasted Brussels sprouts crusted with Parmesan cheese, this fresh salad comes very, very close.

It has the irresistible flavor combo of sweet and tangy, and the textural crunch of shaved raw Brussels sprouts.

I’m not really sure what the botanical story of Brussels sprouts is — do they actually come from Brussels?

Apparently Thomas Jefferson planted them on his estate in 1812, and they might actually have originated in ancient Rome

Whatever their history, I’ve always loved them. Their cute, compact cabbage-like shape and sweet nutty undertones make them a very charming vegetable, you have to admit.

That said, there are plenty of otherwise open-minded eaters who hate on Brussels sprouts.

If you happen to know one (or are one yourself) this recipe is a good place to start friendly negotiations.

Eating Brussels sprouts raw tames their reputation for well, not smelling very good.

In their defense, smelly cruciferous vegetables get that way when overcooked. In this recipe you avoid that little problem altogether!

Tips for delicious Brussels sprouts slaw:

To prepare, first trim off the stem end of each sprout and remove any damaged or yellow leaves.

If you have time, make the slaw about 15- 30 minutes before serving so that the leaves absorb the dressing.

To get the best thin slices of Brussels sprouts, shave them using a plastic mandoline slicer. You can also shred them in a food processor using the large slicing disc.
