Shaved Brussel Sprout and Apple Salad

Brussel sprouts don’t just have to be cooked. When shaved or sliced very thinly, they’re delish in salads, like this one. Crunchy tart apples, pecans, and a bright dijon lemon vinaigrette allow this salad to be quite the crowd pleaser. And you know, Thanksgiving is right around the corner- this would be an easy way to get some non starchy veggies in.
