As a kid, I did not like Brussels Sprouts. Nacho reminded me of this when I was preparing this salad. If you ask my mother, she would say that was most definitely the case. She would be happy to describe to you my facial grimaces and the shiver that went down my spine when she would make me finish my portion of the green little cabbages. 

Nowadays, my mom would be shocked to learn that I absolutely love them now—even raw, but the trick is to shave them (or slice thinly). My side kick (the littlest Bueno) took a short video while I was showing him how I cut the Brussels Sprouts.
