Brussels Sprout Salad with Tomatoes, Pine Nuts, and Meyer Lemon – March 2017
The spring season has been with us for some time this mild winter. Roasted Brussels Sprouts are a favorite during the Fall and Winter Holidays. Here is a recipe that utilizes our little green friends from Brussels in a raw, light and bright preparation that is just as delicious as roasting them. If you cannot source Meyer Lemons use the juice and zest combination of a Clementine and a Lemon. Give it a try and let me know your results and feedback at menuforyouinc.com
