This creative uncooked Brussels sprouts recipe has a great contrast between the raw, crunchy vegetable and the rich, smoky bacon dressing.

To make this super easy, I loaded the feed tube on the food processor with the halved sprouts and sliced them. The lemon juice really brightens the flavor resulting in a tasty bacon dressing which would be good on so many things. Honestly, I don't think the brussels sprouts flavor shined through and wondered just how much differently it would have tasted with regular sliced cabbage. Either way, it was good!

We are big fans of Brussel sprouts, the underestimated, under appreciated gift from the garden! The bacon dressing is one I've used many times and is basically the same one I use for German-style potato salad (without the lemon juice). The entire dish is very flavorful and a most welcome change-up for a side dish. I did follow the suggestion of lutzflcat and used the food processor to slice the veggies after I cut out the core. Easy and delicious!

I loved this recipe. It was a great way to fix brussel sprouts. My daughter who doesn't like them really likes this dish.
