As a child, Brussels sprouts was not one of my favorite veggies. In general, there was a tendency to over-cook vegetables. As an adult, I’ve learned to enjoy crisp veggies. This Brussels Sprouts Slaw from Mann’s Packing Company in Salinas, CA is great.
Brussels Sprouts Slaw
- 12 oz Mann’s Brussels Sprouts
- 1/2 cup Chopped walnuts or pecans
- 1/2 cup Dried cranberries
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, preferably freshly shaved
- 1/3 cup Olive oil
- 1/4 cup Low fat balsamic vinegar
- Salt & pepper to taste
Thinly slice Brussels sprouts and place in bowl. Add chopped walnuts or pecans and dried cranberries. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Add to salad mixture and toss all ingredients. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top and serve.
