Why Rough Chop?

For the nuts and dried cranberries, roughly chop them with a knife so the flavor is dispersed throughout the salad. This way, you can still get the flavor while using a smaller amount.

How To Shave Brussels Sprouts

With A Mandoline And Guard

You can carefully shave the brussels sprouts with a mandoline and guard. If you do this, cut the brussels sprouts in half and put the guard on the brussels sprouts to shave them. Make sure to trim the ends of the brussels sprouts. Also, make sure to use safety gloves to protect your hands.

With A Food Processor

The easiest way to shave brussels sprouts is to cut the ends off and add them to a food processor.

How Many Brussels Sprouts To Use

We used fresh brussels sprouts in this recipe. If you use fresh whole brussels sprouts in this recipe, we recommend buying 1.5 pounds of them. The recipe calls for 1 pound of shaved brussels sprouts. By the time you shave them and discard the ends, you will have about 1 pound of shaved brussels sprouts. Or, feel free to use 1 pound of pre-shaved brussels sprouts.

Ingredient Substitutions For Brussels Sprout Salad

Substitution For Pecans

We love the flavor of pecans in this shaved brussels sprouts salad. You could also use slivered almonds or walnuts in this recipe.

What Cheese To Use

We used light feta in this recipe. Shaved parmesan or goat cheese would also work well.

Which Apples To Use

We used pink lady apples because they are our favorite apples. Honey crisp apples will work well or even green apples if you want a tart punch. Use your favorite kind of apple in this recipe and you can’t go wrong.
