Awhile back in the blogger world, it was pretty vogue to post a pic of your fridge for all to see. It was kind of like a peek inside someone's life, which is always cool.
I never posted a fridge shot last time around, but luckily, City Pages Hot Dish invited me to share and did a little write up on it.
One of the items in my fridge were brussels sprouts and I had them front and center (well, bottom and center) so I wouldn't forget they were in there. A lot of folks do not like brussels sprouts. I tend to believe that's because they've only had the mushy stinky variety. It's unfortunate because brussels sprouts are totally yummy if prepared in the right way. Sometimes I roast them, sometimes I put them in a veggie hash, but often times I just prepare this simple salad:
All you have to do is slice the brussels sprouts very thinly, toss with the juice of 1/2 a lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper. Then add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, some chopped toasted walnuts, and grate Parmesan or Asiago cheese on top and toss again. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so to let the flavors meld.
We served this alongside a homemade deep dish pizza and I have to say that a mix of pizza and brussels sprouts salad kind of rocked.
