Creamy Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Apple Salad

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 5-6 servings 1x


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts
  • 2-3 medium apples, chopped
  • 1/2 c homemade paleo mayo
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 Tb lemon juice
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 2 Tb apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tb ghee, melted (optional)
  • 1/2 c hazelnuts


  1. Combine mayo, apple cider vinegar, ghee, lemon juice, and spices. Set aside to let flavors merge.
  2. Prepare the brussels sprouts. Rinse well and cut off stems if you need to. To shred them, I used my Vitamix, but you can also use a food processor the same way. I've heard a mandolin is best for shaving brussels sprouts, but I haven't tried it myself!
  3. Chop the hazelnuts. Heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add hazelnuts and let toast for a few minutes or until they become fragrant.
  4. In a large bowl, add shaved brussels sprouts, mayo mixture, chopped apples, and hazelnuts. Stir to combine.
  5. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge, covered, for about a week.
