brussel sprout salad with maple vinaigrette

I first had a variation of this salad at our favorite local sushi restaurant (H20) and I played around at home until I came up with my version. It's pretty simple - you shave(either on a mandolin or like I did - with a sharp knife) raw brussel sprouts, julienned red radishes, green onion, and I added homemade roasted spanish peanuts and bacon. I drizzled this with my basic vinaigrette (recipe posted earlier this month) and instead of a pinch of sugar I added some maple syrup. Mmmm. Even dave who DESPISES brussel sprouts liked them raw in this dish. Score.
