This recipe originally came from "A Pinch of Yum" website. I use balsamic vinegar instead of the apple cider since that is what I had on hand.

Ingredients

FOR THE DRESSING

1
lemon, juiced
1
orange, juiced
3 Tbsp
apple cider (not vinegar, just regular apple cider)
1 medium
shallot, minced
1/2 c
olive oil
1/2 tsp
salt & pepper to taste

FOR THE SALAD

48 medium
brussels sprouts (approx 4 dozen)
1 c
almonds, finely chopped
6 slice
cooked, crumbled bacon
1 c
parmesan cheese, grated (asiago or gruyere are also good)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the lemon juice, orange juice, apple cider and shallots in a small bowl. Add the olive oil in a steady stream and whisk for a minute or two, until it becomes creamy-looking.
2
Slice the brussels sprouts with a mandolin, taking care of your fingers, and slicing them as thin as possible. This works best when you hold the stem, slice from the top, and stop with a little bit left at the bottom. Discard the remaining bottom stem part since it's not very leafy anyway. The thinner the shreds, the better the salad. Toss the shreds and loosen them with your fingers to separate and fluff them.
3
Add the remaining ingredients to the salad and toss with the dressing. Serve immediately or within a few hours of tossing.
