Crunchy Brussels Sprouts and Pomegranate Salad
My family has been really getting into brussels sprouts. It is no longer that dreaded vegetable but rather a welcomed guest at the table. After the summer months fade away and the chill claims the air salads become more obsolete on the table. The “winter” salad has become a more emerging trend. Inspired by my recent reading of Food and Wine magazine I decided to take on the task. This was my first time serving brussels sprouts raw and it was a success! Both Brian and Katie approved of this new way of eating these crunchy greens. I am certain this would make a refreshing addition to any Thanksgiving table. Or even a good match to the next day turkey sandwiches. Given how busy this season is and we are eating heavy most times, serving this with a Blake’s All Natural Chicken Pot Pie is another great meal solution
