    I LOVE this salad! And, I have to say that I am not a Brussels sprouts fan. But the shaved, raw Brussels sprouts tasted so mild and just like a regular cabbage mix. This is my new favorite salad.

    My little one can’t eat walnuts, so I did honey roasted sunflower seeds instead and it was a huge hit at my house! Thanks for an easy to follow recipe!
