Raw Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

  • 1 lb raw Brussels sprouts
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Few grinds of pepper

Lemon Vinaigrette

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Pinch of salt
  • Few grinds of pepper


  1. Wash and trim Brussels sprouts. Pick off and discard any dirty or blemished outer leaves.
  2. Shred the Brussels sprouts using a food processor fitted with a slicer attachment. Or, shred by hand by finely slicing them with a knife.
  3. Add Brussels sprouts to a large salad bowl with arugula, cherry tomatoes, and parmesan cheese.
  4. Mix together panko, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Toast in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat on the stovetop. Stir the breadcrumbs occasionally until deep golden brown and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes. Remove immediately from heat to avoid burning.
  5. Combine the lemon vinaigrette ingredients in a small jar. Close the jar and shake vigorously to combine the ingredients.
  6. Pour dressing over the salad and toss it up until well combined. Sprinkle with desired amount of breadcrumbs (you may have some bread crumbs left over). Enjoy right away.


Tips for preparing in advance

Yes, you can prepare all the salad ingredients 1-2 days in advance. Store the shredded brussels sprouts, arugula, and cherry tomatoes together in an airtight container in the fridge. Store the dressing separately in the fridge, and the breadcrumbs separately at room temperature in an airtight container.

When you’re ready to eat, assemble everything together. This ensures everything stays crispy and crunchy!
