Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Fresh Walnuts and Pecorino

35 mins (prep 25)
5 ingredients
makes 6 side-dish servings
Brussels sprouts, sliced very thin, result in an unbelievably delicate slaw. If you have a really sharp knife and good skills, you could slice the Brussels sprouts by hand, but it's much easier to use an adjustable-blade slicer. Since walnuts are fresh and in season, Waxman uses just-shelled ones in this salad. Pecorino Romano varies in saltiness; you may want to add a little more than we call for here.
