Brussels Sprout Salad

Slice brussels sprouts in half lengthwise. Then slice each half crosswise into very thin strips. A bit tedious. Good knife work required!

For a side portion, figure 4-6 sprouts per person. Eyeball remaining ingredients. The sprouts provide great texture, the apple is tart and sweet, the cheese is salty, the walnuts offer crunch and sweet and the parsley provides freshness and color. Don’t be shy on the pepper or salt. Just keep tasting and adding as needed. A good balance of lemon juice and EVOO pulls it all together. This really is a winner.
