KC’s Paleo Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

Paleo Shaved Brussels Sprout SaladMy three sisters are one of my life’s biggest blessings — especially when they have good recipes I can steal 🙂

This shaved Brussels sprout salad is credited to my sister KC. She made it for my nephews’ birthday party awhile back and it has slowly become a family-favorite, popping up at the majority of our family parties ever since.

She normally uses some grated Parmesan cheese and olive oil, so I switched it up a bit to make it more Paleo-friendly and added a few extra ingredients to give it a bit more substance. It is super light, perfect for summer and is always a crowd-pleaser. My immediate family — including kids and in-laws — exceeds 30, so I don’t use the term “crowd-pleaser” loosely; that’s a lot of stomachs to please.
