Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Grapefruit Salad
Cuisine: Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • About a pound of fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 red or pink grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces (optional)
  1. Trim any discolored leaves from the sprouts and then use a sharp knife to cut them into thin slices, discarding the core. Add the sliced sprouts to a medium salad bowl.
  2. Use a sharp knife to remove the peel and the pith from the grapefruits. Hold each peeled grapefruit over the sprouts and use the knife to slice out the citrus sections into the bowl. When you have finished removing the segments from each grapefruit, squeeze the remaining juice out of the grapefruit guts so you get all of the juice into the salad bowl.
  3. Add in the olive oil and salt and gently toss the mixture to coat. Let the salad rest for a half an hour and then add the pecans just before serving. This is good chilled or at room temperature.
