Delish.com’s Parmesan Brussels Sprouts Salad

Discover the story
There is nothing we love more around here than a great holiday salad!

About a decade ago, Brussels sprouts made a huge splash and became popular not just in home kitchens but in restaurant kitchens, too. We quickly hopped aboard the sprouts train and have not looked back. There are many ways to prepare them; roasting, grilling, and deep-frying, one of our favorite ways to eat Brussels sprouts is raw! And there is no better place to do that than in a salad.

Making a Brussels sprouts salad sounds intimidating, but it doesn’t require much prep. Tossed with a combo of toasted almonds, shaved Parmesan, and pomegranate seeds, it’s the best side for any get-together, most especially your fancy holiday dinner.
