Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad

Caesar salad is the bomb at my house. It is a salad I can make to ensure my little ones get some sort of greens in their diet. Brooke LOVES her veggies and fruit, Blake is good about his fruit intake, hesitant of all vegetables and Ed? Well that is currently non applicable {homeboy is barely 3 months}.

By the way, today I took Blake to his 3 month check up at the doctor. I mentioned that Blake doesn’t really love vegetables nearly as much as fruit so the doctor started inquiring:

“Blake, what vegetables do you like to eat? Do you have a favorite?”

“Soda.”

I just about died. Mom of the year, you guys. Right here.

I digress.

So, I serve this salad weekly.

More recently though I’ve been switching out romaine lettuce for brussels sprouts! I’d like to think that its a healthier option considering there’s a pound of bacon and cheese in this recipe. I suppose you could add less bacon and cheese, buuuuut why? I always err on the side of splurge.

To make yourself feel better: this salad definitely feeds a crowd {6-8}, the dressing is homemade {feel free to substitute plain greek yogurt for the mayo} AND at the end of the day, this is just a big bowl of brussels sprouts! The quintessential healthy vegetable.

It tastes just like caesar salad, just with a heartier texture. Brussels sprouts aren’t as tender as lettuce is, so expect that slight difference. But the flavor is spot on.

So, go forth and eat your greens! {And bacon and cheese.}

Have a great day, friends. xoxo

    How do you shave Brussels sprout without shaving your fingers? They are small and will be hard to hold. Am I missing something here?

      1. Lauren

        I buy them ‘shaved’ but you can buy them whole and then cut them with a knife thinly to get that shredded look.

    I love Brussel Sprouts and Caesar Salad. Never thought of combining the two but this looks delicious. I would imagine this would have pretty great crunchy texture.

    This looks like the perfect side dish for the Pesto Chicken and Rice. I’m always trying to find yummy vegetable dishes that my husband will eat, and this looks like one he will enjoy.

    My brussels sprout abhorring husband gobbled this up last night. And I’m having the leftovers right now for lunch with a couple of hard boiled eggs sliced in there – DELICIOUS
