Shred the Brussels sprouts: For the quick and easiest possible shredding, cut the end of the bottom off of the Brussels sprouts, then shred them using a food processor slicing blade like one of these. Alternatively, you can carefully slice the Brussels sprouts with a mandoline, taking care to watch your fingers. If slicing by hand, I recommend holding the stem end, slicing from the top, and discarding the bottom stem. If you do not have a food processor OR a mandoline, you can use a sharp chef's knife: remove the ends and any wilted outer leaves, then slice the sprouts into very thin ribbons.
Prepare the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper. Drizzle 2/3 of the dressing over the slaw and toss to combine. Add the dates, almonds, and Parmesan and lightly toss again. If your salad is drier than you would like, splash in additional dressing. Taste and add additional salt and pepper as desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 hours.
