Honey Mustard Brussels Sprout Slaw

Honey Mustard Brussels Sprout Slaw

This is a great side dish, especially for those who are skeptical about brussels sprouts. You shred the sprouts, add in dried cranberries and walnuts, mix it with a honey mustard dressing, and top it all with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Easy, tasty, and healthy!

Start by trimming the tough ends off of the brussels sprouds, then running them through the food proccessor with a slicing blade set to thin. Additionally, you could use a mandoline or shred them by hand.


Toss with dried cranberries, walnuts, and Parmesan.


In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, garlic, and salt.


You can stop here, and it will keep for a few hours covered in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to eat, add the dressing to the slaw and toss.

    I keep meaning to make a brussels sprout slaw…it’s one of my favorite veggies, believe it or not! Yours looks wonderful and I love that combination of the honey mustard with the sprouts. Sounds delicious!

      Thank you! I’m not traditionally a brussels sprout fan, but I’ve been trying to find recipes that I like for them since they’re so healthy. And yes, honey mustard is a wonderful thing. Good luck getting a chance to make it soon!

    Dustin, this is brilliant! I actually loooove Brussels sprouts, and this is just a wonderful way to make them! So easy, so healthy! I absolutely can’t wait to make this! I’m gonna go put the couple ingredients I need on my grocery list right now – no kidding!

      Thank you! Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I did. I really want to try your pumpkin oatmeal, but sadly I didn’t get to over Thanksgiving due to breakfasts on the go, and now I no longer have a kitchen. Maybe next weekend… I’m still regretting not trying it, with every breakfast I eat. Except those that involve Thanksgiving pie, that is.

        Update! Just wanted to let you know that I finally had a chance to make this slaw and it was AWESOME! My entire family (including my somewhat veggie-averse daughter 😀 ) gobbled it up, and my husband is still raving about it! Super easy, healthy … loooooved it! 😀
