This side dish is worthy of any holiday, which gets a hint of sweetness from dried cranberries. The maple-mustard vinaigrette can also be drizzled on tossed salads.

This dish was sooo good -- loved all the ingredients and would not change a thing. I never cook brussels sprouts and honestly, I can't remember if I've ever tried them before. I've always heard how strong they can be, but these brussels sprouts were absolutely delicious and I will definitely make this recipe again. This dish made a believer out of me! : ) Adding this recipe to my Best of 2013 Cookbook. : )

LOVED this flavor combination ~ I had just stocked up on Trader Joe's orange flavored dried cranberries! Made for Fall Rookie Recipe Tag, due 09/24.
