Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.


As most of you already know, I don’t post salads very often, and if you haven’t already noticed I’ve been on kind of a junk food kick lately. I blame the football season. It’s seriously a mecca for all things bad for you. This salad is totally different though. I could take or leave brussels sprouts. I generally go for them when they are cooked. I’m not much of a raw fan, but when they are shaved…raw is the only way to go. My favorite salad lately is this shaved brussels sprouts salad. It is loaded with all kinds of scrumptious, healthy goodies and is super addicting and good for you!


My latest obsession (I know … there are a lot of them) is Trader Joes’ Pumpkin Cornbread Croutons. They are seriously the most addicting thing ever, and go perfectly with fall-inspired salads.

I totally know what you are thinking. This salad isn’t quite fall-like, but these croutons totally send it into autumn. They are crunchy and savory, but have a just a hint of sweetness from the pumpkin spice. They are the crunch you need in a salad that’s full of one kind of textural note.

It’s the perfect side dish, but is also great for dinner topped with chicken or steak!

Beer Love:

I thought to go for a beer that is lighter, yet flavorful would be a perfect match for this salad. You don’t want anything too strong or overpowering, but you still want a beer that’s got some oomph. I know that we are heading out of saison “season,” but I only find it fitting to pair this shaved brussels sprouts salad!

Here are some examples of farmhouse ales / saisons that I love for this salad:

Prairie’s Puncheon

Great Divide’s Colette

Goose Island’s Halia

Sanitas Brewing’s Sanitas Saison

Boulevard’s Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

  1. I am so glad you mentioned those pumpkin croutons. I was totally overwhelmed by my recent trip to Trader Joe’s because EVERYTHING had pumpkin in it. I loved it, but couldn’t decide what to buy and wasn’t planning on hauling the entire store home with me. Now I can’t wait to go back and grab some of those to enjoy with your gorgeous salad, Justine! You deserve a round of applause for this one ;)
