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. Happily, those days of smelly, frozen then boiled Brussel sprouts are over. I combined both sweet and salty flavors in this salad that packs a delicious, nutritious punch. This Brussel Sprout and Walnut Salad changed my mind forever.
This salad is a beautiful and delicious side dish for any celebration. I love to serve it as part of my Thanksgiving menu. You can skip the preparation and clean up on the holiday, by making the night before and have it in the refrigerator for a no fuss side dish on the day of the holiday.
Make this Brussel sprout and walnut salad part of your week night meals or as part of your vegetarian Thanksgiving feast. It is easy to double or triple if you are serving a crowd.
And you don’t have to tell anyone that it is Brussels sprouts.
