shaved Brussel Sprout Salad
I love eating Roasted Brussel Sprouts, but recently I’ve learned that this little green veggie is just as delicious in a salad. I think this is one of the prettiest salads out there. It has so many wonderful flavors—and colors—in it!
The combination of crispy, shaved (or shredded) Brussel sprouts with sweet pomegranate seeds, topped with some parmesan shavings makes for one delicious salad. Don’t forget about the almonds—those give it a nice crunch!
Pomegranate seeds are one of my very favorite fruits. They aren’t the easiest to eat—it can be tricky getting the seeds out—but you can actually buy them pre-seeded at the store. Trust me, brussel sprout salad isn’t complete without the pomegranate seeds!
This salad is perfect for serving on the side of just about any dinner dish. It’s great with chicken, beef, pork, or even a pasta! You could even eat a smaller version of this salad for a nice light lunch. Filling and healthy!

Do you cook the brussel sprouts for salad?
Nope! Believe it or not, these delicious green orbs are just as tasty fresh as they are cooked. The raw brussel sprouts make this salad nice and crunchy. Embrace the crunch!
Can you make shaved brussel sprout salad ahead of time?
Once you put the dressing on the salad, it won’t maintain its texture for more than a day or so. But you can shred the brussel sprouts a couple days in advance and store them in a Ziploc bag until you’re ready to mix everything together with the dressing. Be sure to add the dressing no earlier than 4 hours before serving the salad.
