Makes 8 servings.

Ingredients

3/4 pound Brussels sprouts

1 Fuji or Gala apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped

2/3 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice*

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

*If Meyer lemons are not available, use 1/4 cup regular fresh lemon juice.

Directions

  • Trim bottom from sprouts, and remove any loose or bruised leaves.
  • Place shredding disc or fine slicing disc in food processor*, and using feeder tube, gradually shred Brussels sprouts; there will be about 4 1/2 cups. Transfer shredded sprouts to mixing bowl.
  • Add apple, cranberries, walnuts, salt, pepper and lemon juice, and stir with a fork for 1 minute to combine well. Add oil and stir well.
  • Cover and refrigerate slaw for 3 hours to overnight.
  • Re-stir before serving. This slaw is best served within 24 hours.

*If your food processor does not have a shredding disc, quarter Brussels sprouts vertically and place in food processor fitted with a chopping blade. Pulse until sprouts are finely chopped, stopping several times to scrape down bowl. Take care not to leave big chunks or to turn sprouts into mush.
