Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad with Sunflower Seed Caesar Dressing

This shredded Brussels sprouts salad is a unique and fun way to prepare Brussels sprouts. They’re shredded, tossed in a homemade sunflower seed caesar dressing, and topped with lots of parmesan cheese and crispy breadcrumbs. Yum!




  1. Wash the Brussels sprouts and pick off any dirty leaves. Chop off the stems.
  2. Shred the Brussels sprouts in a food processor or using a sharp knife. Place them in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Blend the sunflower seeds, capers, lemon juice, garlic Dijon mustard, olive oil, and water in a food processor until completely smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times to incorporate all the ingredients completely.
  4. To make the toasted breadcrumbs, add the panko to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drizzle in about a tbsp of olive oil and a shake of salt. Toss to mix everything.
  5. Toast for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the breadcrumbs turn golden brown. Remove from heat.
  6. Top the shredded Brussels sprouts salad with the crispy breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese, plus a few grinds of fresh cracked black pepper.
