Crunchy Sweet Brussels Sprout Salad

If you haven't noticed, I've been making quite a bit of brussels sprouts lately.  It may have to do with one of my friends Aleen being a huge fan of them so whenever I am having friends over, including her, I tried to make some sort of brussels sprouts dish for her.  She mentioned that she had shaved brussels sprouts at a restaurant in NY so I thought I'd try something along those line this time.

I found a great recipe on Foodnetwork that I decided to try.  Here's the finished product.  I have to admit, I was weary of how this would turn out, but it was a nice change from the roasted brussels sprouts I was used to having.  It was definitely more light and vibrant in flavor. 

Crunchy Sweet Brussels Sprout Salad

1 pound Brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Shred the Brussels sprouts by removing the core and thinly slicing. Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts, nutmeg, and salt and pepper, to taste.

Cook, stirring, until the Brussels sprouts are bright and slightly wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the walnuts and the cranberries and toss to combine. Turn out into a serving bowl and serve warm.  It's super easy to make and everyone loved it.
