Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Moliterno Black Truffle Pecorino, Toasted Hazelnuts & Meyer Lemon Dressing (inspired by The Frisky Oyster)Meyer Lemons are rounder, sweeter and less acidic than traditional lemons, as well as a deeper shade of yellow.  Both Brussels Sprouts and Meyer Lemons are harvested during the winter, so this is a great seasonal salad. 
1 pound Brussels Spouts2 ounces Black Truffle Pecorino (use plain pecorino if you’d like)1/3 cup Hazelnuts2 Meyer Lemons1 Tbsp Sugar1 Tbsp Water 2 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil SaltFreshly ground Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until brown (tip: if they still have skins, after you’ve toasted them, add them to a paper bag and rub the outside of the bag until the skins fall off.)  Remove lemon zest using a vegetable peeler.  Scrape any remaining pith (white substance) from the zest with a knife and discard. Bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch zest for 5 minutes. Juice lemons (with pulp) into a bowl (or a blender if you have one).  Add blanched zest, sugar and water.  Using a hand blender, blend ingredients until smooth. Continue blending and add 2 Tbsp olive oil in a steady stream.  Blend for another minute or so and set aside.  
Using a knife or mandoline, chop Brussels sprouts into thin ribbons, throwing out the thicker stalks.  In a bowl, toss with a 1 Tbsp Olive Oil to coat.  Season with salt and black pepper.   Pile Brussels Sprouts on a plate. Use a vegetable peeler to shave pecorino onto salad.  Drizzle lemon dressing around the edges of the salad (you don’t need much!) and sprinkle with toasted hazelnuts.
