Ingredients

Notes
**You can purchase shaved Brussels sprouts at some markets or you can shave them yourself with a sharp knife or a mandolin. To shave, first trim the hard root end from all of the Brussels sprouts and remove any bruised outer leaves. Use a sharp knife or a mandolin to finely slice each sprout. After all sprouts have been shaved, toss gently to separate the leaves. Discard any tough white centers. *** Shredded cabbage can be purchased at most markets in the produce section near the bagged lettuce. You can also purchase a whole cabbage and slice it thinly with a sharp knife, food processor or mandolin.
