  • 250 g brussels sprouts thinly sliced or shredded in food processor, (trimmed weight)
  • 50 g dried sweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp Good pinch of fine sea salt and pepper to taste

For the creamy dressing

  • 8 tbsp Skyr/low fat thick yogurt
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice plus zest of 1-1.5 lemon
  • 1/3 tsp onion granules/powder


  • Slice the brussels sprouts thinly or shred in a food processor and place in a large bowl. Add the cranberries, seasoning and stir.
  • In another bowl combine the dressing ingredients and stir until smooth.
  • Stir the dressing into the salad, adjust seasoning if needed and serve!


  • Brussels sprouts: For best results use firm, fresh sprouts. Trim and either slice them thinly (I chose this method) or shred in a food processor.
  • Creamy dressing: You can make the dressing in advance and refrigerate, covered, overnight. 
  • For the dressing - zest the lemon first then cut and squeeze out the juice.
  • Yogurt: I used naturally low in fat creamy Skyr, but you can use reduced fat Greek yogurt or another thick yogurt.
  • Herbs: I kept this recipe simple and didn’t use any herbs but if I had I would have gone for either chives or cilantro.
  • Make the salad in advance: Once you’ve added the dressing you can either serve this salad straight away or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  • Not suitable for freezing.
