Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Pecorino

I saw my friend Delane made this recipe and it intrigued me. Raw Brussels Sprouts? I have just learned to like this vegetable but I never thought about them raw. D and I would have to try them.

Then Christmas Eve happened, and we decided we were going to have a lighter meal since Christmas was going to be heavy. So D grilled some Chipotle Barbecue Chicken, I made some Chipotle Scones, and we made this salad. We found out my dad likes Brussels Sprouts. We will make again.
