Serves: 6


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, shredded or cut into a fine slaw

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
In This Recipe


  1. Place the pine nuts into a small skillet and toast over medium heat. Shake the skillet frequently -- pine nuts are rich in oils and can burn easily. When the pine nuts are golden and fragrant take the pan off the heat and transfer the pine nuts to a plate to cool.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, currants and pine nuts. Add the dressing and toss gently. Fold in the cheese and serve immediately.
