Because Brusselsprouts are sadly under appreciated…Because I love Brusselsprouts.

Perhaps that is why I love Brusselsprouts, discount viagra doctor because they are culinary underdogs. And those of you who know me, site know that I cannot resist an underdog. I’m always on their side cheering them on and hoping they come out the winner. Well, there Brusselsprouts, today you won. Even my husband, who avidly wishes for a dog each time I mention greens for the dinner table so that he can slip his portion to this veggie eating figment of his imagination, ate this salad and even threw out a compliment. WOW. I am now certain I did the right thing by making this salad and I want to share it with you.

 

For the Brusselsprouts:

8-10 large Brusselsprouts

2 TBSP Unsalted Butter

¼ TSP pepper

½ TBSP Dijon Mustard
