Shaved Brussels sprouts are a great way to showcase new textures and flavors in a salad, especially this zesty, Thai-inspired Coconut Curry Brussels Sprout Salad with papaya, a crunchy granola topping, and a flavorful vinaigrette. All you have to do is shave fresh Brussels with a mandolin or sharp knife, and toss in cilantro, green onions, and papaya. Then mix up a vibrant ginger-curry vinaigrette to toss into the salad. Top it with a sprinkle of your favorite coconut-flavored granola (or my own home-made Turmeric Hemp Granola) and you are good to go! This healthy, delicious completely plant-based (vegan), gluten-free salad holds up well, making it the perfect addition for picnics, potlucks, and meal prep.
This Thai-inspired Coconut Curry Brussels Sprout Salad is flavored with papaya, a crunchy granola topping, and a flavorful vinaigrette—it’s healthy, delicious, plant-based (vegan), and gluten-free.
1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
½ cup fresh chopped cilantro
3 green onions, sliced

To make salad, shave Brussels sprouts: trim ends, and slice very thinly vertically with a knife or mandolin. (You can also find pre-shaved Brussels sprouts in some markets, too.) Place shaved Brussels sprouts, cilantro, green onions, and papaya in a large salad bowl.
To make vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, red chili flakes, jalapeno, agave nectar, soy sauce, and curry powder until smooth.
Toss dressing into the salad and combine well.
Top with coconut granola. Serve immediately.
