Brussels Sprout Salad Recipe

This Brussel Sprout Salad Recipe is fresh and flavorful for spring, while fitting in perfectly to any vegetarian diet.


  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups brussels sprouts, shaved
  • 1 large fuji apple, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • feta cheese, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Spread walnuts on a cookie sheet and bake until they have some color to them and are fragrant, about 5 to 8 minutes. Allow walnuts to cool enough to chop.
  3. In a large salad bowl or mixing bowl, whisk together the walnut oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, cider vinegar, mustard and salt until smooth.
  4. Wash the Brussels sprouts, chop off all of the hard stems and remove the leaves that fall off easily.
  5. Slice Brussels sprouts from tip-to-tail (not length-wise). Stop slicing once you get to the hard white part – this part you can either discard or chop finely.
  6. Using your hands, break apart any slices of sprouts that are stuck together (this can usually be achieved by simply tossing the shaved Brussels sprouts)
  7. Add shaved Brussels sprouts to the bowl with the dressing and toss together until Brussels are completely coated.
  8. Add the remaining ingredients and toss together.

Serve as a side salad for a delicious and healthy meal!
