Brussels Sprouts Salad

 Ingredients  Brussels Sprouts (5-6 per person)  Sm - medium apple  Vinagrette of your choosing (Raspberry walnut is what I used)  Salt (to taste)  Freshly ground pepper  medium wedge of lemon                                                  Plan of Attack  Chop Brussels sprouts in between bite size pieces and shredded size.  Cut apple into sm bite size pieces, being careful to avoid the core and seeds.  Mix ingredients together and add dressing. Squeeze lemon over the top of the salad. Season with Sea Salt and crushed pepper to taste.     My comments:  This was a quick and refreshing salad I invented to use what I had in the house. I think adding sunflower seeds and possibly shallots would be an improvement. In the place of the apples I think I might try sweetened dried cranberries. For a satisfying meal, I would also consider adding a medium flavored cheese...perhaps a smoked gouda or horseradish cheddar in cubes.
