Shaved Brussels Slaw Recipe

We’re all for roasting, hashing, or sautéing a Brussels sprout or two but, in our book, slaws take the cake. During the Fall and Winter, the Californian in us misses the freshness of summer salads and this Shaved Brussels Slaw with Dates and Pepitas fills that void.

But what we really love? That making Brussels this way is in fact way simpler than roasting, takes up less time than sautéing, and allows you to add some freshness to an all-out meal like Thanksgiving.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Ingredients
  

  • 3 pounds brussels sprouts ends trimmed and outer leaves removed
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
