Raw Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad
Serves: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 4 dozen brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 6 slices cooked nitrate-free bacon, crumbled or chopped
  • 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • juice of one lemon
  • juice of one orange
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Slice brussels sprouts into thin sections, discarding the thick stem. Brussels sprouts should resemble shredded lettuce. You may have to break some of the pieces apart with your hands.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, orange juice, honey, and shallots in a small bowl. Add the olive oil in a steady stream and whisk for a minute or two, thoroughly combining all ingredients.
  3. Top the brussels sprouts with walnuts, bacon, cheese, salt, and pepper. Pour dressing over salad ingredients and toss until evenly coated.


Make the salad 1-2 hours before serving and keep in refrigerator. This will allow the brussels sprouts to marinate in the dressing and soften just a bit! Enjoy!
