I can’t get enough Brussels sprouts. Although my go-to recipe is Brooklyn Brussels Sprouts (which I posted almost exactly one year ago), I was looking for a variation. I like this one because it requires no cooking. This recipe came from Food and Wine magazine. If you use the shredding attachment on your food processor, it can be made very quickly. What’s also nice is that you can make this a day in advance. The recipe in Food and Wine called for salted roasted sunflower seeds. I only had raw unsalted seeds, so I just toasted them on a skillet for a few minutes and added a bit of salt before folding the seeds into the slaw. 


  • 1/2 cup 2 percent plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds raw brussels sprouts, finely shredded in a food processor (12 cups)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons salted roasted sunflower seeds


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt with the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, chives and dill and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the brussels sprouts and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Fold in the sunflower seeds and serve.
