Brussels sprouts slaw with prune dressing


This is my version of a healthy recipe from Melbourne chef Andrew McConnell. Originally served with corned duck at his former restaurant called Moon Under Water in the Builders Arms Hotel, in the inner city suburb of Fitzroy. Andrew’s contribution to the Australian hospitality industry spans 30 years and his current restaurants include Cumulus Inc., Cutler & Co., Marion, Supernormal, Supernormal Canteen, Meatsmith Specialty Butcher and Gimlet at Cavendish House which opened in 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Units Scale

10 baby Brussels sprouts

2 small Lebanese cucumbers

3 shallots, peeled and finely sliced

4 tablespoons parsley, chopped

1/2 cup assorted sprouts

1 tablespoons pepitas

Prune dressing

200g prunes, pitted

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 lime, zest and juice

200ml macadamia oil

Black pepper


For the salad

  1. Finely shave the Brussels sprouts on a mandolin or as finely as possible using a very sharp knife. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Slice cucumbers into very thin discs. Add to the bowl along with the peeled and finely sliced shallots. Add the parsley, sprouts and pepitas and toss well. Set the slaw aside while you make the dressing.

For the prune dressing

  1. Place the pitted prunes in a pot of water and simmer for 10–15 minutes or until completely soft.
  2. Strain the prunes, ensuring there are absolutely no pips and transfer to a blender.
  3. Puree them with remaining dressing ingredients.
  4. Spoon alongside the slaw on individual plates or toss through to make a colourful, very healthy salad to share.
