Salad Days: Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon
Like most of the meals I make at home, this salad is simple to make. Seriously, preparation could not be any easier. I will mention, however, that the most important thing you need for this salad is not an ingredient but a tool–a mandoline to be specific. While you have to be careful to keep your fingers out of the way, the mandoline will thinly slice the Brussels sprouts in a way that most of us who don’t possess the knife skills of a Japanese sushi chef would never be able to achieve on our own.
This salad is perfect as a side and requires–wait for it–absolutely no cooking. Look, I love to cook but there are some days when my stove and I are not on speaking terms and great meals don’t always require cooking. Am I right?! I found this lemony Brussels sprouts salad on Food52–my favorite drool-worthy food site–and modified it a bit.
