Brussels Sprouts Apple Slaw

Given that Brussels sprouts are essentially mini cabbages, they also work exceptionally well in slaws! I’d seen a few different slaws featuring the vegetable lately and combined a few of the recipes to come up with this one that also includes apples and sunflower seeds. Greek yogurt and lemon juice dress the slaw, making it a lighter option than your typical mayonnaise-laden slaws.
