Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad

It's brussels sprout season! Stop by any of our four markets and pick up a few baskets from one of our wonderful produce vendors before they're all gone. One of our favorite way to serve these little beauties is in this delicious, light Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad. Easy, light, and tasty...perfect side item for a hearty winter dish. 


1 lb of brussels sprouts

1 cup of toasted and slightly crushed walnuts or slivered almonds

1/4 cup of olive oil

1 medium sized lemon

parmesan cheese to taste

salt and pepper to taste

Using either a mandoline or a very sharp knife, slice the brussels sprouts into very thin slices.  Toss in a large bowl to separate.  Add walnuts and toss together. Squeeze the juice of the lemon onto the salad and slowly drizzle the olive oil over the salad.  Shave the parmesan cheese into delicate curls and gently toss together with the brussels sprouts and walnuts.  Add salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
