12 Brussels sprouts, whole or cut in half 300 g
2 cups kale 160 g
2 shallots, finely chopped 80 g
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 mL
3 tbsp lemonjuice, freshly squeezed 1 lemon
1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard 8 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
4 tbsp flaked almonds 16 g


  1. Leave the Brussel sprouts whole or cut them in half if large, then blanch them in a pot of salted boiling water until crisp-tender (al dente), about 4 min.
  2. Remove the sprouts from the pot using a slotted spoon. Drain well then set aside in a salad bowl.
  3. Bring the water back to a boil. Add the kale and cook until just tender, about 3 min. Drain the kale and let cool slightly. Squeeze out any excess liquid then coarsely chop and set aside in the salad bowl. Add the chopped shallot.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper. Pour over the vegetables then gently toss to combine. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, then serve.
