Let us know how that salad turned out for you .. I would be interested !
I made this last night... I took the advice and trimmed the end and removed the outer leaves (I think I would have ended up doing that regardless because they did not look good enough to eat, the outer leaves that is).

The salad was pretty good; a totally different taste of brussels sprouts than I'm used to. If I were blindfolded and not told anything, I would have thought I was just eating a normal coleslaw salad, which was good but I think I prefer the qualities of roasted or sautéed brussels more. But on a holiday table full of heavy dishes, it was a welcome light addition.

Also on a side note, it was the first time I'd used my slicing disc on the food processor... I don't know why I don't use that more often! Took like 60 seconds and I had a pound of perfectly shaved brussels sprouts. Quite a handy time saver.
