Not only is this one of our favorite Seasonal vegetables, but it is one that is often overlooked because of its bad rap. It took much convincing to even introduce this as a salad to my husband, but after shaving the little green gems, adding plenty of pecorino and pine nuts, he fell in love with the sprouts as much as I had. – Jenet
Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad
15 Brussels Sprouts
2 Tbs Olive Oil
Shaved Pecorino Romano, to taste
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Pine Nuts, optional
Take washed Brussels Sprouts and remove stem.
Using a hand slicer, shave each sprout into thin ribbons. If able to do carefully, a knife can be used to cut sprouts thinly into shavings. Toss in bowl with lemon juice, oil, adding salt and pepper to taste. Throw in pecorino on top of salad or mix in.
If preferred, pine nuts can be added.
