    Hearty Brussels Slaw with Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe

    We love Brussels in our house and eat them sauteed with bacon at least once or twice a month. While most people know to roast, bake, fry or steam Brussels, I want to encourage you to try eating them raw – thinly sliced or shaved into a slaw.

    Crunchy, healthy and versatile, a Brussels slaw is a great winter salad. Heartier than a lettuce salad, a slaw made with Brussels is great for prepping ahead of time because it actually tastes better as the Brussels absorb more of the dressing.

    To create a lemon parmesan vinaigrette I simply toss the thinly sliced Brussels with lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and parmesan.

    For added crunch, healthy fats, and texture, I toast pine nuts in the oven for about 6-7 minutes before sprinkling on top of the Brussels slaw to serve.
