1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted

Using a food processor fitted with the shredding disk (or Saladmaster #1 cone), shred the Brussels sprouts and carrots. Transfer the shredded vegetables to a large bowl and toss with the apple and pumpkin seeds.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, maple syrup, olive oil, cinnamon, and ginger. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt.  Allow to stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving (or in the refrigerator for up to 1 day).
