My friends never guess this dish is made with Brussels sprouts when they first try it. I often replace the bacon with prosciutto and the spouts with lettuce when I'm in Italy. The dish also works well with grapes too in the summer.

Brussels sprout and bacon salad

A lovely way to eat raw Brussels sprouts. It's crunchy, tangy and really quick to put together.


  • juice of half a lemon
  • juice of half an orange
  • 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar
  • ½ cup almonds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 slices grilled bacon
  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • 20 sliced sprouts
  • ½ cup grated parmesan


  1. First make the dressing by blitzing the almonds, juices and cider vinegar. Taste and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the sliced Brussels sprouts, shallots, bacon and grated parmesan in a mixing bowl and gently mix.
  3. Lightly stir in the dressing and serve.

    • I agree but raw they don’t taste of sprouts at all for those who don’t like them. I loved them once I left home but not when I was young because my mum boiled them till they were mushy. Old school yuck!
