Author Notes

When my boyfriend went home over the holidays, his mom served him a brussels sprouts salad that he couldn't stop telling me about: I ate 6 servings-worth! It was so addictive! It's so simple to make but so good!

Finally last night, after weeks of telling me about this salad, he made it for me—and it lived up to the hype! As simple as it is, it has the perfect combination of fresh, crispness, fat (in the olive oil and Parmesan), acidity, and salt. Thank you, Leah! —Leslie Stephens
