Brussels Sprout Slaw with Apples and Pecans

Brussels Sprouts close-up

Brussels sprouts don’t only look like tiny cabbages — they can be used in many of the same ways as cabbages. Try Brussels slaw!

1 pound trimmed Brussels sprouts
6 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 diced Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apple
2 oz. shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup toasted and chopped pecans
1 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Thinly slice Brussels sprouts using a mandolin or food processor fitted with the slicer attachment. Transfer sprouts to a large bowl. Add olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and red pepper. Toss to coat. Add apple, Parmesan cheese, pecans, honey, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Let stand 5 minutes to allow the Brussels sprouts to wilt slightly and the flavors to marry.
