Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad

I love brussel sprouts, coleslaw, and kale salads.  So why not try a shaved brussel sprout salad?  I've noticed that they have become quite trendy on restaurant menus.   I really enjoyed this!  I ate this salad in 2 servings over the course of 2 days and it was just as good the next day, maybe even better!  I think the brussel sprouts can really stand sitting in dressing, unlike most delicate lettuce leaves.   It is a great change up in the usual salad regiment.  I hope you give it a try!

Happy Cooking!
Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad
based on a recipe from
3 cups (1-10 oz pkg) shredded/shaved brussel sprouts (you can find them in most grocery stores now)
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 T olive oil
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt & pepper to taste

First off, here's what they look like, or at least a version:
Now let's make the dressing.  Combine the vinegar, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. 
Then slowly add the olive oil, until the dressing is emulsified.
Time for the walnuts:  toast the walnuts in a dry non-stick frying pan over medium heat, keeping a close eye on them so that they don't burn.  Be sure to keep them moving.

Now combine the shaved brussel sprouts, walnuts, parmesan cheese, and dressing until well combined.
Enjoy immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
