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.
