This shaved brussels sprout salad is full of fall-inspired ingredients like apples, pecans and cranberries tossed in a simple lemon vinaigrette. It's an easy, show-stopping side salad that's perfect for your dinner table or holiday menu.


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts*
  • 1 large honeycrisp apple, chopped (or gala apple)
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ⅓ cup shredded parmesan
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup red onion

Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing:

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon dijon
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Shred your brussels sprouts: trim off the root end, remove any tough outer leaves, and then thinly chop your brussels sprouts. You can do this with a knife, mandolin, or food processor.
  2. Mix the dressing: in a small bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients.
  3. Make the salad: add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl, drizzle the dressing on top and toss to coat.
  4. Marinate: let the salad sit for at least 10 minutes covered in the fridge before serving.


*You can also buy a bag of pre-shredded brussels sprouts. You'll need about 6 cups total.
