Tuna Salad Recipe with Shaved Brussels Sprouts

This is a delicious chewy salad, with subtle protein, and pleasant, light flavors.

You can buy Brussels sprouts already shaved, but it is easy, fresher, and less expensive to slice them yourself, especially if you have a food processor.

I make the dressing in the food processor as well, after switching the blade back to the regular one.

This makes four main dish servings and keeps as leftovers in the refrigerator for later just fine.

Note: I think the avocado is a better garnish for this than the bacon, but do what sounds good to you.
