The sprouts can be shaved and dressed ahead of time — they're super hearty, so they can sit in the dressing for a few hours before your guests arrive.


  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


Mix lemon juice, zest, olive oil and grated parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Set aside. Trim ends off of brussels sprouts, with a chef knife or in a food processor shave brussels spouts. Toss in dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

If making ahead, mix dressing, shave brussels sprouts and don’t combine until before serving.
