what a clever way to slice the sprouts and then eat them raw! I love the taste of them, often stir fried with nuts, onion and other stuff, but I will certainly give this a try, thank you ;)

Natures barb wire. Now that's funny. I just bought kale and wasn't sure what to do with it. I will try this recipe. Just copied it to my desktop.
