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 restaurant kitchens too. We quickly hopped aboard the sprouts train and haven’t looked back. All of the ways to prepare them, roasting, grilling, deep-frying, one of our favorite ways to eat Brussels sprouts is raw! And there’s no better place to do that than in a salad.

Making a Brussels sprouts salad sounds intimidating, but it doesn’t actually 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.
