Lovely Brussels sprouts recipe! Dressing is a tad sour so next time I would reduce vinegar slightly. Used crisp bacon that I have frozen and stirred that in about 10 minutes before serving . I prepped this earlier except for apple. Served with Peaches Chicken Cutlets and Orange Scented Couscous.
Wow this is a terrific recipe! Used yellow onion instead of red and made half the recipe. Just loved the apples with the brussels, a lovely combination. The dressing is fantastic and I loved the addition of the mustard seeds too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
What a sumptuous side dish, perfect for holiday dinners! At our dinner table there were some odd remarks: from a Brussels sprouts lover, "the Brussels sprouts didn't stand out", and from a Brussels sprouts avoider, "this was good, but I wouldn't call this a Brussels sprouts dish because so much was going on." The rest of us just loved the recipe because it tasted so good! I loved how easy this was, too. Made for Best of 2013 tag game.
