Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad With A Citrus Dressing

  1 rater(s)

It’s rare that people think to use Brussels sprouts as the base for a salad. The common approach to Brussels sprouts is to remove the ends, cut them in half, and roast them in the oven. That’s fine and well, but a cleanse-approved trick is to thinly slice them like shredded cabbage and toss them with both sweet and tart ingredients. This eliminates the subtle bitterness of raw Brussels.
