Shaved Brussels sprout salad with Pecorino and Dijon vinaigrette

So, I was never the biggest fan of Brussels sprouts until I tried them smothered in cheese and bacon at this tapas restaurant called Spuntino. Granted, everything tastes good smothered in grease but it opened up my palette and I started to play around with a couple of different recipes. It’s safe to say I’m definitely a fan of Brussels sprouts now, and this recipe is quick, healthy and SO DAMN GOOD.

Shaved Brussels sprout salad with pecorino and dijon viniagerette

prep time: 10 MINScook time: 5 MINStotal time: 15 mins

This brussels sprout salad is the perfect side dish or can be enjoyed completely on it’s own. You no longer have to hide this super-food in your napkin, even the pickiest eaters will love this recipe.

ingredients:

For the salad

  • 1 quart of thinly shaved brussels sprouts (available  in most food stores already shaved)
  • 1 cup of roasted pecans , broken up
  • 1 cup of Pecorino Romano
  • optional : crispy prosciutto

For the dressing

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash of Herbs of Provence seasoning
  • fresh squeezed lemon

instructions:

In a medium salad bowl, toss the shaved Brussels sprouts, pecorino and roasted pecans together. Separately, mix all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. I always taste as I go, sometimes I like to add a little bit more Dijon to give it a kick.

This salad is super easy and very delicious. My boyfriend who was convinced he hates Brussels sprouts ate his entire bowl and asked if there was more. For an easy and light weeknight dinner, add shredded chicken or turkey.

  • A couple of days ago we rented a car and drove an hour and 45 minutes deep into the jungle to visit this incredible cenoté. We witnessed an ancient Mayan wedding celebration which was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen. There were local cenotés near tulum but this experience was well worth the drive💀
  • our narcos inspired engagement session was taken at @casamalca - Pablo Escobar’s old private getaway 🇨🇴 👨🏻🛩💰💃🏼the photo shoot was short because we were both suffering from too many spicy margaritas from the night before (it wouldn’t be us if we weren’t hungover for our engagement pictures🤣) the rest of the photos are up on the blog! • link in bio • @mayoorquiin #tulum #tulummexico

La Valise is an intimate, exclusive bungalow with only 9 rooms tucked away between the jungle and white sand beaches. It felt like our own private getaway! We extended our trip an extra night and Pasquale actually picked out this eco chic hotel (can you tell I’m rubbing off on him?😉) La Valise exceeded our expectations going above and beyond to make sure we felt right at home from the minute we got there. They noticed Pasquale’s birthday on his passport and even set up a special surprise for us!

Our dreamy room had a cozy bed and open shower with one of the cleanest beaches in Tulum - unfortunately there is a bad seaweed problem on the coast right now but they are working hard to mitigate it

You won’t find a warmer or more welcoming staff than at @lavalisetulum so if you have the opportunity to visit I highly recommend it!

  • we’re supposed to be on the road heading to chichén itza but instead I’m laying here📍nursing a gnarly hangover. I think the bartender at casa malca misunderstood my tequila order as TE KILL HER.
