Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Hazelnuts and Dried Cranberries is a delicious seasonal side dish or lunch!
Have you heard of shaved Brussels sprouts? I am a big fan of Brussels sprouts, and like a lot of people, I tend to prepare them by roasting them in the oven. But they are very good eaten raw in a simple salad, too. When sliced thinly, they are often called “shaved”.
Did you know that according to TreeHugger.com, the mighty sprout can help lower cholesterol, prevent cancer, and help with digestion?
Plus besides being nutritious, shaved Brussels sprouts are a tasty option when you want a hearty salad without using your usual lettuce.
This recipe serves 2 as a side salad. However, you can easily double the recipe if you want bigger servings or to serve a crowd. You may even want to bring this salad to your next potluck. It’s sure to be a hit around the holidays.

- Add the dressing, hazelnuts, and cranberries to the Brussels sprouts, and toss to coat.
