To make this super easy, I loaded the feed tube on the food processor with the halved sprouts and sliced them. The lemon juice really brightens the flavor resulting in a tasty bacon dressing which would be good on so many things. Honestly, I don't think the brussels sprouts flavor shined through and wondered just how much differently it would have tasted with regular sliced cabbage. Either way, it was good!

The cider vinegar was over powering.

We are big fans of Brussel sprouts, the underestimated, under appreciated gift from the garden! The bacon dressing is one I've used many times and is basically the same one I use for German-style potato salad (without the lemon juice). The entire dish is very flavorful and a most welcome change-up for a side dish. I did follow the suggestion of lutzflcat and used the food processor to slice the veggies after I cut out the core. Easy and delicious!

Roasted the halved sprouts in butter first instead then tossed them in the bacon dressing... My wife and even my 10 year old daughters loved them!!! Highly recommend this recipe!

I loved this recipe. It was a great way to fix brussel sprouts. My daughter who doesn't like them really likes this dish.

I am one of the "don't like BS" but I made this recipe and its now thumbs up for BS! If you want a different salad recipe then this is a good one, and if you take it to a pot luck rest assured that your salad will be the only salad made with BS. I will keep this recipe and make it again.

This was very good, but I had some left over and tried to eat it the next day, I did heat it up a little. It tasted really bad, so I guess when you make it, you have to eat it the same day.

I added Tabasco to the dressing instead of cayenne. I think the addition of craisins or something similarly sweet would be a nice addition.
