Shaved Purple Brussels Sprouts & Purple Cauliflower Salad

I recently found some purple brussels sprouts and purple cauliflower at my local market so I decided to make a Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower Salad. Of course, this tastes just as good with regular Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower.

Serves 6-8

For salad
  • 1 small-medium head of cauliflower
  • 1lb. Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, peeled into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
For dressing
  • 2 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Mustard
  • 1 tsp. Mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 8 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients and mix until fully emulsified (until the oil is no longer separate from the other ingredients).
  2. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and boil 2-3 minutes, or until just tender.
  3. Trim the ends of the brussels sprouts and shred using a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can thinly slice the brussels sprouts using a knife.
  4. In a bowl, combine cauliflower, brussels sprouts, Pecorino Romano cheese and walnuts.
  5. Add dressing and mix well. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
