Festive Shaved Brussels Sprout Slaw

Many people think of serving Brussels sprouts on their holiday table, but few think to serve them raw.  The truth is, they are just as delicious raw in a slaw as cabbage is, and they can be a wonderful seasonal alternative to cabbage. Although many slaws are served with creamy mayonnaise based dressings, a light vinaigrette creates a nice variation!  I recently made a shaved Brussels sprouts slaw with tart pomegranate seeds and toasted pecans in a citrus pomegranate vinaigrette which I decided needed to be shared as it would be perfect on a Holiday table.  Besides this recipe being flavorful, festive and delicious, the Brussels sprouts retain more nutrients when served raw then cooked.
