Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Sesame Dressing

Brussels Sprouts are my favorite. I usually only saute them. Yesterday I tried something I had read about - shaved sprout salad. I tried an Asian-inspired dressing to change it up and it was great! Enjoy!

    1. Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Sesame Dressing


      2 C Brussels Sprouts, shaved
      2 carrots, shredded
      1/2 C cashews
      Sesame seeds, for garnish

      1/2 tsp garlic, minced
      2 tbps soy sauce
      3 tsp rice vinegar
      1/2 C vegetable oil
      1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
      1/2 tsp minced ginger
      Pinch Cayenne pepper


      Wash and remove outer leaves and stem portion. Shave Brussels sprouts (using a mandolin is easiest). Place in medium size bowl. Shred carrots. Add to Brussels sprouts. Add cashews. Toss to mix.
    2. For the dressing, whisk garlic, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in vegetable oil, then sesame oil (dressing will thicken slightly); season with salt and pepper. Do ahead: Dressing can be made 2 days ahead. Transfer to a jar; cover and chill.
    3. Pour over Brussels sprout mix. Serve room temperature or chilled.
