Shaved Brussels Sprout & Walnut Salad with Manchego Olive Oil Dressing

December 1 2023
« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

With just a handful of ingredients, this side is packed full of flavour—one of my favourite ways to enjoy Brussels sprouts. It's bright and zingy, full of texture, and again, so easy to prepare.

The beauty of this dish is that it's all put together in one bowl; the dressing gets whisked in the serving bowl, and then the salad ingredients are placed on top, ready to toss before serving—perfect!

If you need to prepare this a few hours ahead for a BBQ or dinner, you can make everything in advance. Simply place the Brussels sprouts, walnuts, and cheese on top of the dressing and toss them together just before serving.

Even if you don't love Brussels sprouts, I urge you, give this one a go! It might just surprise you. A delicious side for BBQs, the festive season, roasts, etc.
