Stop Feeding Them to the Dog and Make This Brussel Sprout Salad Recipe!

In 2014, I tried and fell in love with a ton of new foods.  Spaghetti Squash, salmon, butternut squash -- all new to me last year and all current favorites!  I made the decision that I would keep that trend going and keep expanding my food horizons in 2015.  Up first?  The most dreaded vegetable of my entire childhood.  The one that my mom wouldn't even dare make because she knew we would not try it.  BRUSSEL SPROUTS!

I have to admit I was a little nervous to try brussel sprouts again but after seeing Bobby Flay make a brussel sprout salad on Food Network, I decided to give it a try.  I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised!  The brussel sprouts are crunchy, similar to a broccoli salad, and the flavor matches well with fruit and bacon.  I made a homemade dressing and did not have to add much to this flavorful salad, just enough for a little kick!

  1. That sounds delicious! I haven't had a brussel sprout in years because my mom tortured me with them as a kid. I have developed a deep love for cabbage and am now a little more open to brussel sprouts. I'll have to give this a try!
