Shaved Brussels Sprouts

It's a rare thing that I look at a menu, see an item with the main ingredient of brussels sprouts and say to myself, "yes, I think I'll order that!"

It's probably just as rare that you ask your server what they think of a brussels sprouts dish and have them respond, "ooh, that's one of my favorites!"

But that's just what happened when SPH and I had a dinner out at Catch 54 Restaurant recently.

Maybe it was the setting of where we were eating:


or the fact that SPH and I were alone, without the boys.  Maybe those things helped, but honestly, they were the best brussels sprouts I'd ever eaten.

Once we were home, I started thinking about how I might replicate the recipe when, during my "restock the kitchen post-vacation shopping trip" I found these:


I bought the bag, brought it home, and got crackin' on coming up with a recipe.  I think this comes pretty close, although my kitchen can't hold a candle next to the view at Catch 54.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts

1 - 16 ounce bag, shaved brussels sprouts
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
1/4 cup shelled pistachios

Mix the brussels sprouts, vinegar, oil, honey, salt, pepper and red onion in a bowl:



Let marinate either overnight or at least 1-2 hours before serving.

Before serving, add the cheese and toss well:


Add the pistachios, if desired, and serve:


Serves 6-8 as a side dish.

Life is sweet,
SPC

I just harvested a plant of Brussel Sprouts Yesterday...(planted last fall... but they "fruited" this summer ... + lots of seeds) Thought U'd saute, BUT it looks like a salad... Wonder how it would taste sauted in coconut oil???
Canola oil unless organic is GMO.

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
