Brussels Sprout Salad

Pat Duran


This is a great recipe for Brussel Sprouts.
The photo is from Pinterest and the recipe idea is inspired by Erin Cechal- I tweaked her recipe to suit my flavor buds.

This makes a big batch and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
I love that is similar to cabbage coleslaw.
Hope you enjoy my version.
