Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad
Have you ever had shredded Brussels sprouts before? It's a delicious and different way to eat this vegetable that even avowed Brussels sprouts-haters will love. My husband gobbled it up, and normally he won't touch them!
This salad is simple to make. You'll shred the Brussels sprouts and then toss them with a zesty Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette. Feel free to customize the salad with your favorite ingredients. Nuts, dried fruit, or other vegetables would all taste great.
Serve this Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette as an accompaniment to your favorite sandwich or any meal that needs a fresh and flavorful side.
