Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

This Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Bacon and Parmesan is over the top delicious and comes together with just a few ingredients. Plus, this Fall Salad is ready to eat in 20 minutes!


  • 4 strips of original bacon (try to avoid thick cut), cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 lb of brussels sprouts (8 ounces), stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons of walnuts (whole or pieces)
  • 1/4 cup of thin shavings of parmigiano-reggiano cheese, peeled with a vegetable/potato peeler


  1. Prepare the dressing, if you are making homemade. I highly recommend my honey mustard recipe. There is a spicy and regular version. Place it in the fridge while you prepare the salad.
  2. Wash the Brussels Sprouts and cut off the stems. With the shredding attachment on the food processor on low speed, run the brussel sprouts through to shave. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium low heat, pan fry the bacon for 8 to 10 minutes until crispy. Transfer to bacon right into the salad when finished using a slotted spoon, without pouring in the excess grease.
  4. Assemble the salad by adding the brussels sprouts, walnuts, cranberries, and warm bacon into the salad bowl. Pour about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of dressing into the mixture. Toss to combine.
  5. Top with parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!


  • Use the shredder attachment on the food processor to shave the brussel sprouts into the perfect texture. 
  • When shredding the brussels sprouts, use a low speed on the food processor. 
  • Prepare all the ingredients before sautéing the bacon, so you can serve it with the bacon still a bit warm. I like to scoop the bacon straight from the pan onto the brussels sprouts. It helps to tenderize them just a bit.
