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.
