Shaved Brussels sprouts salad

Here’s a simple little thing:  shaved Brussels sprout salad.  Brussels sprouts are a staple in our diet.  We usually eat them roasted, but this is a neat twist.  Honestly, I would never have thought they’d taste so good raw!

1/2 small red onion, sliced finely

2-3 slices of proscuitto, sliced into ribbons

Soak the onion slices in a small bowl of cold water while you prepare the rest of the salad.

Whisk together the lemon juice, honey, mustard, olive oil, salt and pepper until emulsified.

Trim the Brussels sprouts of their outer leaves and the root ends.  Slice finely and then use your fingers to separate out the slices so they look almost like a slaw.

Toss the shaved sprouts in a bowl with the onions (drained of the water) and the dressing.  Serve with grated Parmesan.

Enjoy!
