Brussels Sprouts Salad



The other weekend we were running errands downtown and our stomachs were grumbling, so we popped into The Purple Pig, it is a new restaurant on Michigan ave. It was very warm and cozy. We had a beet salad, Brussels sprout salad and grilled cheese. and of course some wine. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food was delish! We especially liked the Brussels sprout salad, so of course we re created a version at home. I usually cook Brussels sprouts, so it was a nice option to cut them up for a salad.

Recipe
8 Brussels sprouts
1 lemon
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano

Chop the Brussels sprouts into thin slices.

Grate up some cheese, my favorite tool for doing this is a Microplane. If I lived in Portland, I would only buy my cheese from Cheese Bar, but I don't...so sad.

Toss the Brussels sprouts with lemon, olive oil and cheese. Enjoy!
