Lemony Brussels Sprout Slaw


This dressing gets big, bold flavor from pureed lemon—peel, flesh and all. It's a delicious foil when served alongside rich dishes. The recipe doubles easily but shred the sprouts in batches so the food processor bowl doesn't get overpacked. Or use a shredding attachment for your stand mixer.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
