  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts fresh
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 avocado chopped
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 small shallot diced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup champagne or white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Trim and thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. Place in a large bowl.
  • Cut the pineapple chunks into small, bite-sized pieces about 1/4” x 1/4”. Add to the Brussels sprouts, along with the red onion.
  • Combine the olive oil, vinegar, citrus juices and zest and mustard in a blender or small food processor. (You can also just whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss well to combine.
  • If you have the time, refrigerate for an hour or so to let the dressing slightly soften the sprouts. When ready to serve, gently toss in the chopped avocado and the Parmesan cheese.
