Shaved Broccoli Stalk Salad

Shaved Broccoli Stalk Salad

  • Author: Life is but a Dish


A scrappy salad that’s summery, bright, and a little different! Shaved Broccoli Stalk Salad is an easy and fresh side dish.



Yields 2-3 side salads

  • 1 large or 2 small broccoli stalks
  • 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper


  1. Use a peeler or a sharp knife to trim the broccoli stalks of any thick fibrous parts sticking out. 
  2. Use a mandoline (this really helps to get paper thin shavings) and slice the broccoli stalks into one layer on a plate. If some overlap a little that’s okay.
  3. Squeeze 1 whole lemon over the top, making sure all the broccoli is covered in the juice. Let sit for 5-10 minutes then use a vegetable peeler to shave large chunks of fresh Parmesan on top. 
  4. Finish with a pinch of flaky sea salt and a crack of black pepper and serve immediately.
