- 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts
- 1 medium lemon
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts and discard any brown leaves. Thinly slice the sprouts about 1/8-inch thick.
Place the sprouts in a medium bowl, then use your fingers to separate the layers a bit. Set aside.
Zest half the lemon, then mince the zest.
Juice the lemon, and add it to a small bowl, along with the zest, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until well mixed.
Pour vinaigrette over Brussels sprouts and mix well.
Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
