Shaved Sprouts with Apple and Pomegranat­e


This is another way to enjoy Brussels sprouts that doesn’t involve any cooking at all. You simply slice or shave the sprouts into very thin strips and toss it together with the other ingredient­s to give you a relatively quick and substantia­l salad. The flavours here are all about lifting and compliment­ing the sprouts with peppery onion, salty cheese, honey, chilli, and of course a good squeeze of lemon juice. All these contrastin­g elements come together nicely to create a really interestin­g and impressive salad with very simple ingredient­s.


450g brussels sprouts, sliced or shaved thinly seeds of one pomegranat­e 1 small red onion, sliced thinly 2 small Irish eating apples, cored and chopped roughly 25g pecorino, grated 80g walnuts, chopped salad dressing: juice of one lemon 2 tablespoon­s of honey 1 small red chilli, seeds removed and slice thinly 60ml of olive oil good pinch of salt

In a large bowl mix the shaved sprouts, apple pieces, walnuts, red onion, pomegranat­e seeds and grated pecorino.

Whisk together the lemon, honey, olive oil and sliced chilli in a small bowl. Season with salt and drizzle very generously over the salad, tossing the whole thing so everything is well combined. Serve and enjoy.
