Sometimes autumn flavors can be all about richness. Creamy, squashy soups, heavy casseroles, nutmeg-dusted baked goods. When you want something seasonal but light and fresh, turn to this Brussels sprouts salad. The sprouts are shredded and served raw, tossed with raw apple slices and a drizzle of maple-apple cider vinaigrette. We especially like it as a bright accompaniment to heavier seasonal meals.
