  • Cook's Note:
  • I have never liked Brussels sprouts, but they are my husband's favorite vegetable; he doesn't like nuts. This recipe, however, pleases both of us! I created the recipe one day when I needed to bring a salad to a church dinner. It was a hit. Also delicious as a cold salad, if you prefer.
