Recipe | "Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Dates, Toasted Nuts, Bacon, Feta Crumbles" by Sue Ready

Cook's notes:
By shredding the raw Brussels sprouts, you break down their hearty, fibrous bodies into what tastes more like cabbage or lettuce. And when you combine those shredded sprout pieces with a lemony oil dressing that soaks in and softens them just a tad, the only thing better is having them with the toasted walnuts and dates placed on top. It was so easy to put together and delicious. Another option for the dressing is a store bought Lite Greek Vinaigrette. Recipe serves four. - Sue Ready
