Brussels Sprouts and Broccoli Slaw


1 lb (500 g) broccoli = one large bunch

1 cup (250 mL) Brussels sprouts

1/2 medium red onion

1 large red pepper

1 large orange pepper

2 large carrots, scrubbed well, unpeeled


1/2 cup (125 mL) apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin oil

1 tsp (5 mL) grainy Dijon mustard

1 tsp (5 mL) honey


1.    To make your life easier you really need to make this with a food processor. If you don’t own one, either thinly slice or grate the veggies, ask for a food processor as a gift, or run out and buy one today. It’s one of my favourite toys in the kitchen.

2.    Let’s assume you own a food processor – using the thinnest slicing attachment, slice the broccoli, Brussels sprouts, red onion and the peppers. Place the sliced veggies into a large bowl.

3.    Change to the large grater attachment and grate carrots. Add to the other veggies.

4.    Whisk together the dressing ingredients: apple cider vinegar, oil, Dijon, and honey pour over the veggies and toss well.

5.    Store covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
