This recipe clearly isn’t a traditional Caesar salad but it has some of the salty, garlicky flavor that you might expect. It would be delicious served with pasta or pizza and you can make it a few hours in advance since the brussels sprouts won’t wilt.



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 drops Worcestershire sauce (optional- see note)
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups shredded Brussels sprouts (about 1lb of sprouts, ends trimmed, then shredded)
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup whole wheat croutons


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and garlic powder.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with the dressing until evenly coated.
  3. Top with Parmesan cheese and croutons.
  4. The Brussels sprouts can be tossed with the dressing up to 3 hours in advance, but wait to add the parmesan and croutons until just before serving.


Worcestershire typically contains fish, so be sure to find a brand that is vegetarian. Annie’s makes a great vegan version.
