Lemony Brussels Sprouts Salad

30 Minutes

4 - 6 Servings

Introduction

Lemons add immediate freshness to just about everything! When combined with a member of the cabbage family like the Brussels sprout, the lemony flavor breaks down their bitter nature. Sharing the spotlight with apples, Dijon mustard, sweet cherry tomatoes, and crunchy pine nuts - this salad leaves room for any protein or pasta you want to enjoy it with. It's hearty enough for the main course and versatile enough to be served as a side.
