Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad


1 lb. Brussels sprouts, sliced very thin (or one 12oz bag of shaved Brussels sprouts from your local grocer)

1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

2 small seedless citrus fruits, such as mandarin oranges or clementines, peeled and segmented

1 cup shaved grana Padano or Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries

1 cup red wine, heated to almost boiling (If you prefer an alcohol-free option, you can use water or orange juice instead, just make sure it’s heated up as well.)

Salt + white pepper to taste


1 orange, juiced and zested

1/2 lemon, juiced and zested

2 teaspoons creamy Dijon

2 teaspoons Maple syrup

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/4 cup Sherry Vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup Olive Oil

Pinch of pepper


Step 1:

Pour hot wine (or alcohol-free option) over cranberries or cherries and let soak while you prep other ingredients, until the wine is room temperature, and the fruit has plumped up a bit.

Step 2:

Make the dressing by adding all ingredients except oil to a bowl or food processor, then whisk or process while slowly adding the oil in a thin stream until all the ingredients are combined.

Step 3:

Just before serving (roughly 1 hour or less), assemble the salad by tossing the Brussels, adding drained cranberries/cherries, half the cheese, pine nuts and then dressing. Season to taste. Top with remaining cheese for serving.
