Step 1

To prepare the Brussels sprouts, using a mandoline, a very sharp knife, or the thinnest slicing blade on a food processor, very thinly slice the Brussels sprouts into fine shreds. Transfer to a serving bowl and, using your hands, fluff and separate the shreds.

In a frying pan over medium heat, fry the bacon until brown and crisp and the fat renders, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon pieces to a paper towel, then sprinkle over the salad.

Discard all but ¼ cup of the hot bacon fat. Re-warm over medium then whisk in the grainy mustard, cider vinegar, and honey until well combined. Drizzle over the shaved Brussels sprouts and apples and season with salt and pepper.

Toss gently and serve.
