It’s made with Brussels sprouts!

I am a huge Brussels sprouts fan.

I can still remember the first time I had them.

A friend made them with some butter and bread crumbs and I thought they were out-of-this-world delicious!

They have become one of my favorite vegetables, and they make this Caesar salad over the top fantastic! Brussels Sprouts       Aren’t they CUTE!

Really, they fill you up way better than lettuce, so they are just perfect for this salad. Sliced Brussels Sprouts @createdbydiane 

They have such an incredible crunch, sliced Brussels sprouts stay crisp for days after they are sliced.     brussels sprouts in a food processor 

It’s easiest I’ve found to slice them in a food processor with the slicing blade attached.

Just pile them into the chamber and start slicing.

In minutes you can slice pounds of Brussels sprouts.

Alternatively, you can slice them with a knife, it may take a bit longer but really this salad will be worth it. Slice them thin.

Garlic Toast for Caesar Salad @createdbydiane

Croutons are typically found in a Caesar salad, mine are just bigger!

I brushed sliced baguette with melted butter and garlic and toasted it in a pan over medium heat.   Slicing Parmesan Cheese @createdbydiane

The parmesan cheese (Oh, the parmesan cheese… how wonderful it is!).

To create large thin slices I used a vegetable peeler and created large slivers.

Grated will work well too. I usually have a go big or go home attitude, which probably explains the bread and the cheese!



I like a little added diced red onion and then… the dressing.

Select a great Caesar dressing… with a salad like this, the dressing is the most important part! Buy the best one your can find.

ANOTHER great way to enjoy this hearty salad is to saute the brussels sprouts, not long, just about a minute in a really hot skillet I use cast iron, and this will then become a salad on a whole new level.

This salad stays so crunchy even after it’s mixed with the dressing!

Add this to your menu and you may be surprised by who ends up liking Brussels sprouts! Slicing a whole bunch of Brussels sprouts at the beginning of the week and having them on hand makes it easy to whip this salad up in minutes (add some chicken if you like, too!).

  3. Most people can’t eat Brussel sprouts because there is a natural chemical the plant puts out that a lot of humans don’t like on there taste buds. But they are really good for you if you like that taste.

  12. We already use their products. They are extremely local to us. So local, in fact, that I once almost rented out a huge old farmhouse they own.
