Shaved Brussels Sprouts SarVecchio Salad
A mandolin is one of the best culinary tricks to keep up your sleeve. With this wonderful tool, you can present food like the professionals. This dish consists of just a few simple ingredients. I ALWAYS have SarVecchio on hand, because it's the perfect cheese to finish a dish with. By thinly shaving the brussels sprouts, it sort of hides the fact that you're eating brussels sprouts. Feel free to toast the pinenuts, but I like them raw. This versatile side pairs well with just about anything.
1 lb Brussels Sprouts
about 1/2 cup Pinenuts
1/4 lb SarVecchio
1 Lemon, juice and zest
Calivirgin Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Using a mandolin, shave brussels sprouts. Place in a bowl, add pinenuts and toss with lemon and a light drizzle of evoo. Season with salt and pepper to taste and finish with finely grated SarVecchio.
