  • 500 g Brussel sprouts, cleaned and finely shredded using a mandoline
  • 2 sweet-tart apples (I like Braeburn or Wellant), quartered, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely minced
  • 100 g toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 50 g grated parmesan

For the dressing:

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar (unfiltered)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and Dijon mustard until well combined. Season with a little salt and pepper, to taste.

  2. Transfer the shaved Brussels sprouts to a large serving bowl. Add the apples, and red onion, pour over the dressing and toss until evenly coated. Add the hazelnuts and parmesan and toss again. 

  3. Check the seasoning and add more salt and pepper, to taste, if desired.

  4. Enjoy!
