This salad packs a satisfying savory punch. If you don't have a food processor, you can slice the sprouts on a mandoline or by hand with a good chef's knife.
Fit a standard 12-cup food processor with the slicing disk. Feed Brussels sprouts through the feed tube to slice. Place sliced sprouts into a salad bowl.
Place pine nuts in a small, dry pan over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, tossing once or twice, until fragrant and lightly browned. Add to salad bowl along with cheese, capers, pepper and dressing. Toss well and serve.
