  • Trim broccoli stalk and peel. Starting at the crown, thinly slice the broccoli head, including the stalk (you can slice both broccoli and brussels sprouts in a food processor). Combine broccoli and brussels sprouts in a large bowl and toss with 1/2 tsp. salt. Let sit for 10 minutes. 

  • Chop anchovies (optional), then mash to a paste with the side of a chef's knife. Combine anchovies, grated Parmesan, oil, and lemon juice in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over slaw; toss to coat. Serve topped with olives, almonds, and shaved Parmesan.
