Brussels Sprouts Salad

I love brussels sprouts in all shapes and forms, but using them as a base for a salad may just be one of my favorite ways. The salad stays crisp, and has the most delicious crunchy texture.

I like to buy the pre-shaved brussels sprouts for this recipe to make the prep work simpler and quicker. If you’re starting with whole brussels sprouts, you can simply pulse them in a food processor to chop them, or thinly slice them using a sharp knife.

There are so many good toppings in this salad, like cannellini beans, seeds, nuts, and sliced apples. It’s sweet, savory, and can stay fresh and crunchy for up to 4 days in the fridge.

This delicious salad is filled with some of my favorite ingredients, and comes together in under 20 minutes. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • brussels sprouts
  • cannellini beans
  • shaved parmesan
  • thinly sliced apple slices. I love using honeycrisp for this recipe
  • mixed seeds, like pumpkin and sunflower seeds
  • walnuts
  • dried cranberries

The maple dijon dressing adds the perfect sweetness to the salad, and is one of my go-to salad dressings.

This salad will stay fresh in the fridge for a few days, and won’t lose its crunch! It’s the absolute best make-ahead salad to keep around for a quick and delicious lunch.
