Serves 4


1 lb Brussels sprouts, stems trimmed and shaved or cut very thinly

3 Tbsp Flying Olive Melgarejo Arbequina or a Flying Olive medium to robust EVOO of choice

¼ cup red onion, chopped

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


Using the slicing disk of a food processor, mandolin or sharp knife, shave or slice the Brussels sprouts as thinly as possible

Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Toss well to combine.

Drizzle with Flying Olive Eurkea Lemon EVOO and the shaved parmesan cheese.
