Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad

Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad

This warm Brussels sprouts salad is absolutely yummy!  Growing up Brussels sprouts were on my list of foods I never would eat.  They were usually frozen and just not what I liked.  But as an adult, I have discovered fresh Brussels sprouts and all the many ways to cook them, and this is one of my favorites.  It is a great winter salad because it is warm.  It reminds me a bit of the wilted spinach salad that was popular in restaurants when I was a child, but it doesn’t really have the same ingredients.  What it does have is a sweet, salty, sour combination that compliments the slight bitterness of the Brussels sprouts perfectly. 

For this recipe, I used one whole stalk of Brussels sprouts because I was lucky enough to find them still on the stalk.  After they were washed, trimmed, and halved, I had about four cups of Brussels sprouts.
