After preparing this Brussels sprout salad several times over the Thanksgiving holiday, I knew I wanted to share the recipe from our first cookbook. I’ll simply list my top three reasons, albeit there are a thousand, why I adore it:

  1. It comes together easily. Toss your sprouts with olive oil, lemon, dried cranberries, grated cheese, pine nuts, chives, salt, and pepper. You can also use pre-shredded Brussels sprouts.
  2. It can be prepared days in advance. This recipe is ideal to prepare in advance for holiday parties since the hardy Brussels sprouts hold up nicely even if you season them beforehand.
  3. It tastes very good despite only having a few ingredients. It’s a straightforward yet highly addicting blend of salty cheese, chewy, sour cranberries, and vibrant lemon. This salad has all the desired flavors and only requires a few ingredients.

  1. If you have a mandoline, use it to cut the Brussels sprouts into thin slices. Toss them in a medium bowl with the chives, pecorino cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, pine nuts, and seasonings of salt and pepper.
  2. After 15 minutes at room temperature, taste the salad and make any necessary spice adjustments. If desired, add one more drizzle of olive oil before finishing.
