This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Blue Cheese, Cranberries, and Pecans is a perfect holiday side and can be made in 15-minutes or less.


  • 2 lbs whole Brussels sprouts (There will be a 25% loss when prepped so if you are using pre-shaved 1 1/2 lbs is correct amount to use)
  • 1/2 cup (76g) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup (52g) dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup (37g) pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper


  1. If using whole Brussels sprouts rather than pre-shaved: Starting with clean Brussels sprouts, use a paring knife to trim the stems off, then slice in half. Discard any outer leaves that are yellowed or blemished. Usually, I end up with about a 25% loss of the vegetable when prepping from whole. You may have very fresh-looking leaves and not have to discard as much. The end result should be roughly 1 1/2 lbs of trimmed Brussels sprouts, so keep this in mind if you are purchasing pre-shaved ones.
  2. Shave the trimmed Brussels sprouts using your food processor with the slicer attachment for quick and easy prep or very carefully using a mandoline.
  3. Once Brussels sprouts are shaved combine in a large bowl with blue cheese, cranberries, and pecans.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, and pepper. Whisk together with a fork, then pour on top of the Brussels sprout mixture. Toss to coat evenly, then taste for salt and pepper and adjust if needed. Serve cold.
