brussels sprout salad

I often find myself cravings salads even in the heart of these cold winter months. In an attempt to nourish my body with seasonal ingredients I have been gravitating towards winter greens. This salad pairs raw lacinato kale with shredded Brussels sprouts, seasonal fruit and a few nuts for crunch. Not sure about raw kale?  I say give this salad a try. It has been a life-changer for several people in my world.

Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad
Serves 6

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 small garlic clove, finely grated
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1-2 large bunches of Tuscan kale (about 1 pound total), center stem discarded, leaves thinly sliced
12 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed, shredded with a knife or food processor
1/3 cup almonds with skins, sliced
1 cup diced pear, apple or pomegranate seeds

Combine lemon juice, Dijon mustard, shallot, garlic,  olive oil and salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Mix thinly sliced kale and shredded Brussels sprouts in a large bowl.  Add salad dressing and massage with your hands to evenly disperse.

Garnish with fruit and nuts.

    Are the brussels sprout cooked and chilled before shredding, or are they also raw?

    The recipe lists olive oil, divided and it doesn't say to add the oil to the dressing. What are we supposed to do with the olive oitl?
