My fridge is piled high with brussel sprouts ready for christmas dinner. I don’t know about you but I get bored of eating them boiled. If you have any sprouts leftover after christmas dinner then they are delicious raw. This recipe is  a welcome break from the usual christmas fare and is a delicious light and healthy meal.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

200g brussel sprouts, finely sliced

2 satsuma, peeled and pulled into segments

4 sticks celery, roughly sliced

1 red onion

6 sprigs mixed herbs, such as mint and parsley

50g mixed nuts and seeds, I used poppy seeds and hazelnuts

Extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon to dress 


  1. Combine all the ingredients. Season with a little salt and dress with the oil. Serve as part of a light lunch or fresh salad with some leftover turkey.
