There was a time at my table when the brussel sprout was boiled to oblivion, and was mixed up with gravy and mashed potatoes. The only hint of it was a little overcooked green leaf here and there that gave off an unpleasant flavor. How could we be so mean to such a cute little bud? Had we only known you can prepare it shredded with strawberries, pears, walnuts, Romano cheese and lemon dressing. The simplest of ingredients that rest on a bed of sprouts.
It’s a perennial favorite on our menu and is often paired with chicken or salmon.
Shredded, grilled, roasted and even boiled, if done right, it’s a delicious addition to any meal for any season or cuisine.
