Yield Serves 8 (serving size: 1 cup)
We love Brussels sprout salads but wanted a quicker approach than the tedium of pulling apart the leaves. The food processor slices each sprout nice and thin with lightning-fast speed.

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
