Brussels Sprouts and Apple Slaw


Brussels Sprouts are a close cousin of cabbage and even look like mini cabbages so why not make them into a slaw?  For this recipe, we chose to steam the brussels sprouts before combining them with the apple and carrots.  However, you can make this recipe with raw brussels sprouts if you prefer the crunch in your slaw.
