Cheesy, tender Brussels sprouts are just three-microwave-minutes away.


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts (filberts), toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Pecorino Romano cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Shaved Pecorino Romano cheese (optional)


  1. Trim stems and remove any wilted outer leaves from Brussels sprouts. Thinly slice sprouts.* In a microwave-safe dish combine Brussels sprouts and the water; cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 100% power (high) about 3 minutes or until sprouts are bright green, stirring once. Drain in a colander. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain again. Pat dry with paper towels or use a salad spinner to dry.
  2. In a large bowl combine Brussels sprouts, hazelnuts, and the 1/2 cup shredded cheese. For dressing, in a small screw-top jar combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well to combine. Pour dressing over sprouts mixture; toss gently to coat. If desired, top with shaved cheese.


  • *Tip: To thinly slice Brussels sprouts, use the thin slicing blade of a food processor. Or halve the sprouts lengthwise with a sharp knife, then place halves, cut sides down, on the cutting board and cut into thin slices.
