Brussels Sprout Salad

Brussels Sprout Salad
Growing up I think my mom was too nice to my brother and me at the dinner table. Unlike friends’ parents, I have no memories of being forced to eat my veggies. Brussels sprouts only entered my world as an adult, and that’s partly because they have become a trendy restaurant staple. Since my mother did not insist that we eat our greens, I am convinced that is that is why I do eat my veggies now. I have no lingering hostility toward any produce.

Roasting sprouts in the oven is how I used to prepare them at home until one time when dining out, I ate them raw. Since then, I’ve been making brussels sprout salad. I use my food processor fitted with the slicing disc to shred the sprouts before dressing them in a lemony vinaigrette and tossing with Pecorino, walnuts and red onion. Salad may be in the name, but this dish could be considered a side and would hold its own at the Thanksgiving table.
