  4 rater(s)

The holiday season is all about the what? Not the sweets and stuffing, but the Brussels sprouts! We have seen an uptick in the popularity of Brussels sprouts within recent years. Classically, you roast Brussels sprouts, but you can 100% enjoy them raw. To balance the bitter flavor of Brussels sprouts, this salad contains sweet apples and dried cranberries for balance. And the dressing is acidic so you have bitter, sweet, tart, and acidic flavors that delight your palate with each bite.
