Matthew and I have a little obsession with Brussels sprouts. We eat them all the time, usually like this. In an effort to be a little healthier, though, I put together a really fresh and delicious salad. It’s so easy and it tastes amazingly good! I sliced the brussels sprouts really thinly, added toasted walnuts, apple slices, and drizzled it with a olive oil vinaigrette with a touch of honey. The recipe is below!

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Walnuts and Apples

makes 6 side servings

1 1/2 lb Brussels sprouts, any discolored leaves discarded and stems cut just a little bit off the bottom
1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted {350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes checking frequently}
2 Tablespoons finely grated Pecorino Romano, or to taste
1 apple, sliced in half, seeds scooped out, and then sliced thinly
6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoons good honey
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Slice each Brussels sprout in half and then carefully cut with knife into very thin slices. If you have an adjustable-blade slicer you can use that. Toss Brussels sprouts in a bowl to separate layers.

Chop walnuts coarsely and add to Burssels sprouts along with cheese and apple slices.

In a bowl, whisk olive oil with lemon juice, honey, a pinch of salt and black pepper. Add to salad and toss to combine. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

I hope you all enjoy this fresh, healthy salad!
