This shaved brussels sprout salad, topped with Marc0na almonds and pancetta for extra crunch and flavor,  is a simple yet delicious side dish. 



  • 2 oz pancetta, chopped 
  • 2 cups shaved brussels sprouts, about 3/4 pound 
  • 1/2 cup Marcona almonds
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest 
  • 2 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp shallots, finely minced 
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan 


  1. Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat; add pancetta and cook for 10-12 minutes or until crisp. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  2. Remove the tough outer leaves from the brussels sprouts. Using a mandoline, shave the brussels sprouts (if you don’t have a mandoline, you can slice them by hand). Place shaved brussels sprouts in a medium bowl.  Add the almonds, lemon zest and pancetta.
  3. Whisk the vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, shallots and pepper together in a small bowl.  Add olive oil and whisk until combined. Pour over salad and toss to coat.  Top with shaved parmesan before serving.
