Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts. Remove damaged outer leaves, trim ends, shred using a food processor or knife. TIP: When processing brussels sprouts, the “S” shaped blade tends to work better than the shredding disk.

  • 6 to 8 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into bite size pieces

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • Dash of sea salt
