Shaved Mustard Green Salad

The salad is uses raw mustard greens. Shredding them give them the best texture for this salad dressed with a simple, roasted garlic vinaigrette.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min


4 Servings


  • 4 cups mustard greens, rinsed and dried, with center rib removed
  • 1/2 head of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + more for roasted garlic
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnuts, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Wrap garlic (paper peel and all) in tinfoil, drizzle with a few drops of olive oil, roast about 20-25 minutes, or until the cloves are golden brown
3. Combine olive oil and lemon juice, set aside
4. Fit your food processor with the shredding attachment and feed the mustard greens into the opening, set shredded greens aside (if you are doing this by hand, roll greens into a cigar shape and slice to create thin ribbons – similar to a chiffonade)
5. In a heavy bottomed skillet, toast crushed hazelnuts over low heat, about 5 minutes or until the hazelnuts begin to warm through and are fragrant
6. Remove garlic from oven, press each clove to remove from peel, mash with a fork and whisk into olive oil and lemon juice to form the vinaigrette
7. Season dressing to your taste
8. In a large bowl, toss to combine shaved greens, lemon garlic vinaigrette and half of the crushed hazelnuts
9. Plate the salad and top with remaining hazelnuts

Much of this recipe can be made ahead, making it a perfect light lunch or side dish for company. The vinaigrette can be made up to a week ahead, and stored covered, in the refrigerator.

  4. This recipe looks gorgeous but please can you tell me what ‘mustard greens’ are? I’ve never heard of them in the UK. Thank you.

    • Hi Bessie,

      Mustard greens are a slightly bitter and peppery green vegetable, similar to spinach or kale. Kale or collard greens would both be great options of mustard greens are not available. Hope you enjoy!

      All the best,
