Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Lemon-Poppy Seed Dressing

  • Servings : 6 as a side salad
  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Ready In : 15m

Make this summery slaw featuring autumn produce for a nice, change-of-seasons side dish.

It’s ready-to-eat in a few minutes, but if you’re able, prepare an hour or two in advance to allow the acid time to tenderize the brussels.


  • 3 T. light-flavored oil
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1-2 T. sugar
  • 1 T. poppy seeds
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, washed and trimmed
  • 1 apple


Step 1

In medium bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, sugar, poppy seeds and salt. Set aside.

Step 2

Half brussels sprouts lengthwise, then slice thinly. Add to dressing.

Step 3

Slice apple into short matchsticks. Add to dressing. Mix well.

Step 4

Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few hours before enjoying.

    Delicious and easy! I made it in the few minutes the family was putting shoes on to go out the door and we enjoyed it a few hours later with vegan Reuben Sandwiches!

    I am just starting research for my “22 days of nutrition” (plant based diet) coming excuse me if I sound silly. This recipe calls for sugar…any particular kind of sugar? I am surprised sugar is okay?
