This shaved winter brussel sprout salad is delicious and light! I’ve made it a few different times over the last few weeks for my clients. It’s always a welcome addition in the winter. Although not completely necessary to make the dish with a mandoline, it makes it so much easier to get the thin shreds you want. You can also use a food processor shredding blade or a sharp chefs knife will work as well but may take you just a bit longer. These are the times when you wish you had one!
I purchased mine on Amazon – Swissmar Borner V Power Mandoline and have had it for many years and use it often. It works great because it’s a very sharp blade! You have to be careful for ones that are not as sharp because that could be dangerous for slipping. And on the other hand you have to be careful because whatever you are cutting you don’t want to go all the way down to your fingers or you will slice them.
Try this delicious salad as a light lunch or as a side with your dinner. It’s delicious and comes together so quickly. It also holds up in the fridge for a few days too so it’s an added bonus!
