The frozen brussel sprouts of my youth can still give me nightmares. I was the kid in our home who loved vegetables and even I did not like them. My baby brother once faced off with a single, gray brussel sprout for hours before breaking down, giving up and eating it, just so he could go to bed. Clearly we were not enjoying a Brussel Sprout and Walnut Salad back in the day.
The days of smelly, boiled brussel sprouts are over.
Brussel sprouts are in season, readily available and with summer’s steamy temperatures, this salad is the perfect side dish.
Jessica combines sweet and salty in this salad that packs a nutritious punch. Make it the night before for an easy, delicious dish the next day.
And you don’t have to tell anyone that it is brussel sprouts.
