You can dress this salad ahead of time but I wouldn’t dress it more than a few hours in advanced. Or else the kale will get soggy.

Sometimes I eat this Brussels sprout salad raw when I don’t feel like cooking! They add a satisfying crunch to the salad. They taste neutral like any other basic salad green. They’re not bitter.

What is The Best Way to Shred/Shave Brussels sprouts?
  • The best way to shred Brussels sprouts is with a food processor. Using the chopping blade on the food processor will slice through the brussels sprout in a few quick pulses. The downside to this is that you may have some larger pieces.
  • You can also use a Mandolin. Just be careful not to graze your knuckles
  • I like to slice my Brussels sprouts with a knife. It’s Theraputic and if you’re good with a knife it doesn’t take too long.
  • Buy the Brussels sprouts pre-shredded for the ultimate time saver.
