Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Arugula Salad

No comments

I’m a total fan of Brussels Sprouts. They are healthy, crunchy and can be served quite a few ways.

At a restaurant this week I had a Shaved Brussels Sprouts salad. It was good, but I knew I could do something a bit better! (If I say so myself!). So tonight I tried, and succeeded.

It’s topped with sweet golden raisins, creamy, salty Roquefort chunks and crunchy pine nuts. It’s simple, tasty and healthy! It went perfectly with my Chicken Sheet Pan dish I made.


Start off by thinly slicing your Brussels Sprouts, after slicing the core off of course. Allow some to be super thin and others to have a bit more thickness to them.

Then just mix the other ingredients and toss with the Dijon Vinaigrette dressing. Sprinkle with some golden raisins and pine nuts and you’ll have a super delicious crunchy salad you should surely enjoy!

One tip: Get a GOOD quality Roquefort. It should be salty, and somewhat creamy, but still be able to be sliced or crumbled. (Coulet Roquefort at Heinen’s is what I love).
