To make the brussels sprout slaw

  1. Heat a very large skillet over medium-high heat (I prefer a nonstick here) then add olive oil. Pour in shredded or shaved brussels sprouts, then season with salt and pepper. Sauté until tender, about 5-7 minutes, stirring often. Transfer brussels sprouts to a very large mixing bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to brussels sprouts, then toss to combine. Make asian sesame vinaigrette.

To make the asian sesame vinaigrette

  1. Combine the olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, agave, and ginger paste (if using) in a mason jar. Place lid on top, seal, then shake well. Store in fridge until needed.
  2. Pour asian sesame vinaigrette on top of warm brussels sprouts and remaining ingredients, then toss well to combine. Garnish with additional sliced almonds for added crunch (optional). Serve warm, room temperature, or cold.


This salad is all about the brussels sprouts and the dressing – feel free to use up or add other vegetables as desired. I’ve tried this with edamame and purple cabbage (thinly sliced) and it’s excellent! Switch out the almonds for peanuts. Instead of rotisserie chicken, try adding small cooked shrimp. The possibilities are endless!
