I’m just going to put it out there and say this recipe was developed by my youngest daughter Madison. She loves her veggies raw and loves a raw cabbage salad so one day while I was cutting my brussels sprouts preparing to saute them, she started picking at it. Then she asked me to give her oil and vinegar (she likes making her own salads) and I realized she was onto something. I really love to let her invent and do her own thing in the kitchen, even if sometimes her ideas are a bit… lets say overly creative.

I never knew how good Madison was in front of the camera until yesterday when I thought it would be cute to film her making this after school – she’s a natural and may be taking over Skinnytaste someday, who knows! Sometimes she does this with lime, and apple cider vinegar, and sometimes all of the above. Here she wanted to use all three. This salad is vegan, paleo, dairy-free and gluten-free.

  1. Loved the idea of using brussel sprouts as a type of raw cabbage. There are 2 of us in our home, and we use a total of 3 brussel sprouts (shredded, then split between us) per meal. Will consider this when I want some other cabbage slaw dish but don’t want to buy a whole cabbage head or a package of shredded cabbage!

  2. Excellant Madison! Used lime juice with olive oil. Nice tangy flavor. Dedunately a keeper.

  5. For anyone who hates chopping up Brussel sprouts but loves this recipe, Trader Joe’s actually sells shredded Brussel sprouts. I was so happy when I saw it!

  7. Can I make this the night before or is it best served immediately?

  8. I am not a fan of Brussels Sprouts but I think it would work with shredded cabbage (which I can buy preshredded), right?

  9. Madison is a sweetheart! Please tell her how much we enjoy making and eating her recipe! Thank you Madison!

  10. How long would this keep fresh?

  11. Jewel are now selling shredded brussel sprouts 🙂

  12. She is so precious, and such a great chef! I can't wait to try this recipe, thanks Madison!

  13. Have you ever tried to make coleslaw with brussel sprouts?

  14. Gina,
    Cane you recommend a good olive oil? Thanks! 🙂

  15. I made this just now, since I bought brussels sprouts at the store the other day. It was delish! I love it! The shredding took me awhile; can I use my food processor with similar results next time? Thanks so much for all your amazing recipes!

  16. I love that you also include the old points, which I much prefer to the new. Do you use the old or new?

  17. I also love Brussels Sprouts. Your daughter is so cute in this video. I love how she licks her fingers and the lemon/lime. Also, her creativity with food, making it her own as they say. And so polite to thank you for opening the bottle of vinegar for her.

    Strange thing, I never thought of eating Brussels Sprouts raw. I don't know why. I think this would be so good. Thank you for sharing it! I'll watch for the oven fried pork chops. Pinning it!

  18. I love brussels sprouts and this recipe sounds good !

  19. She just gets cuter and cuter.

    We do a similar b sprout salad with a few dried cranberries and slivered almonds. Sometimes it is with a mustard-y dressing, sometimes with a green onion dressing. I will have to try Madison's version.

    For those of you who don't THINK they like Brussels sprouts, when they are prepared this way (and the way Jules The Norweegie above says about sauteing them to soften them) they are a whole different vegetable. The same with roasting them with olive oil and garlic until they are browned and serve them with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Even people who don't like b sprouts find them delicious.

  20. Madison is adorable! Definitely a natural at both cooking and talking in front of the camera 😀 And the salad looks delicious! Brussels sprouts are so easy to dress with simple dressings to make it taste more delicious. When I shred them, I like frying them just a liiittle bit to soften them up 🙂 I might have to try Madison's recipe next time 😀 x

  21. I hate brussel sprouts, but this I might actaully be able to eat…

  22. i like Brussels sprouts specially in lunch its my favourite food
    check this http://www.englishmuffinpizza.net/

  23. That is a nice looking brussels sprout salad. I do one also but it isn't so low-cal as it has a Caesar dressing. 🙂

  24. I'm not really a fan of Brussel sprouts, but seeing this recipe makes me think I need to give them another shot. It's been years since I've had them…maybe my tastes have "matured!" on the grocery list this weekend…

  25. This looked so good I made it tonight! It was simple, easy & different than the same old sides. Next time I think I will make it with fish tacos.

  26. Love brussel sprouts! Trying tonight!

  27. Since brussel sprouts have become my new favorite vegetable lately, I needed more recipe ideas. Thank you!

  28. Love the idea!
    Makes brussel sprouts look a lot tastier!

  29. I eat brussels sprouts all the time, but never thought to shred them. What a great idea, can't wait to try it!

  30. Well if the salad is as good as the creator is cute, it'll be a hit!

  31. What a wonderful setting you have provided for your daughter. She is comfortable combining foods and learning to enjoy all kinds of food. Great job, mama!

  32. Madison is so cute and also this salad looks wonderful! Pinned!

  33. Never thought about making a salad out of Brussels sprouts. Great idea! www.eatallovertheworld.weebly.com

  34. Very cute!!!! And very yummy!!! A great way to show other kids how cool it can be to eat their veggies!!!

  35. Un'ottima cena!!!!

  36. that's not sugar, it's salt. and it says in the post that sometimes her daugher uses vinegar, sometimes she uses other items. she says that in the video her daughter decided to use all of the ingredients that she likes. i think the post is highlighting the versatility of how you could make the salad.

  37. That is so very cute, I showed my toddler trying to show her a little girl eating brussel sprouts. She says: "maybe that baby could make enchiladas!" hahah!

    You have a future star on your hands, she did so well.

  38. In the written recipe there is no vinegar nor any sugar but there are in the video.

    • It's salt, also I mentioned above that she makes up her own recipes… she wanted the vinegar, you can add it too if you wish!

  39. She is seriously a doll! My favorite part was when she licked the lemon/lime…hilarious!! So creative, too 🙂

    • Thank you!

      • Hey Gina – interested in this recipe you said shredded Brussel sprouts. Is this done on a grater or Cuisinart gadget or chopped thinly with knife? – hope this email you can see refers to the RAW shredded Brussel sprouts lemon and oil recipe. Those little suckers on a grater would be close to shredding your fingers – (like dealing with ginger on a grater) – love it but not the grader/fingers part. thanks for you technique tip Love your on0line photo btw. Regards.

      • With a knife…
