"We kids feared many things in those days - werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School - but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts."
-Dave Barry, Humorist
I have loved brussels sprouts for years. I was one of those kids who actually liked them and have cooked them all sorts of ways through the years. It was about 10 years ago that a friend of mine served me shredded brussels sprouts. They are great steamed, but this fresh salad is a bit like a tender, sweet cole slaw.
The rule of thumb for this tiny member of the cabbage family is to buy small ones and buy them as fresh as possible. Even though they look like little cabbages, they actually grow off the sides of a thick stalk and can be found in the market this way now (and if you do, buy them).
Try to use them the day that they are purchased, as there is less time for them to develop a bitter flavor.
