Crisp, shredded Brussels sprouts, toasted hazelnuts and tangy cranberry-orange dressing provide a burst of fresh flavor to balance a rich holiday roast. We like the hearty texture of raw Brussels sprouts, but if you prefer them a bit softer, blanch them first and then plunge them into cold water and pat dry.


  • 1 navel orange
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and very thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped


  1. For dressing: With a vegetable peeler, remove a wide, 2-inch-long strip of peel from the orange. Peel and segment orange; set segments aside; discard peel. In a food processor, combine orange peel, brown sugar, salt, garlic, curry powder and pepper. Cover and pulse with several on/off turns until peel is finely chopped. Add cranberries and onion; cover and pulse until cranberries are chopped. Add reserved orange segments and pulse three or four times to chop. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in honey and oil. (Dressing can be chilled, covered, for up to 24 hours.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine Brussels sprouts and dressing. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours before serving. To serve, stir slaw and sprinkle with hazelnuts.


  • A food processor is ideal for thinly slicing Brussels sprouts, but a knife or mandolin works.
