For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil OR extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp sugar-free maple syrup (Lakanto) OR pure maple syrup for paleo OR orange juice for Whole30
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt (I use the one from Trader Joe's) OR you can sub with onion powder and season with additional salt
  • fine sea salt + freshly cracked black pepper , to taste

For the salad:

  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts , trim bottoms off & slice very thinly OR 1 package of shaved Brussels sprouts (I buy mine from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped kale , washed & dried
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 4 grape tomatoes , sliced into halves
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pecans
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sliced toasted almonds
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds / pepitas
  • 1.5 tablespoon pomegranate arils
  • 5-8 fresh cranberries


  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast , for a cheesy flavor or grated parmesan if not Whole30 / dairy-free / paleo


Make the dressing:

  1. Add the dressing ingredients to a bowl or a jar. Whisk or shake until combined. Taste and adjust seasonings.

For the salad:

  1. Add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Pour in dressing and toss until well-coated and combined. Store in fridge for at least 15 minutes before serving. This helps build flavor and soften the Brussels sprouts. Top with more nuts, seeds & nutritional yeast, if desired.
