Brussel Sprout Salad with Sour Cherries & Pine Nuts

Brussel Sprout Salad with Cherries and Pine Nuts

I think I can actually be classified as a Brussel Sprout Stalker.  When I am in a market, I look for them.  I hover over the bin and try to choose just the right ones.  I think about Brussel Sprouts when I don’t have them and I devise delicious ways to eat them repeatedly when I do have them.

Dear Brussel Sprouts, I think I love you.

Usually, I like to stick them under the broiler with no fuss or even toss and saute them lightly in a pan with butter; but how could I celebrate Spring AND our fruit #HGEATS theme and munch on my Brussels?

EASY!  A raw brussel sprout salad with drizzled EVOO and fresh squeezed lemon – add in the dried sour cherries (from Whole Foods and totally addictive!) and pine nuts and the final topping is fresh shaved parmesan.  Two bowls later, I was still thinking about the next one.

Great for lunch, dinner, snack and I can admit to eating it for breakfast!  There are no exact proportions because this is a toss and be creative recipe – have some fun!
