I dedicate this submission to my father, Farmer Gene, who loved both growing vegetables and opera. He never lost his inner twelve year old and looked forward to a great guffaw over a pun...the cornier, the better!
I grew up with icky frozen Brussels sprouts, and never appreciated the wonderful flavor and crunch of these adorable mini-cabbages. I love them roasted but they are also fantastic raw in this savory salad with toasted pecans and blue cheese. The shallot vinaigrette adds a nice punch as well.
Full of antioxidants; fiber; Vitamins B, C, and K; and cancer-fighting compounds, when paired with the healthy fats of olive oil and pecans, these greens can't be beat!
Much to my chagrin, and beyond my mortal ability to use denial to cancel it out, I'm a delicate flower when it comes to food and have allergies that render me blank, fatigued, and bed-ridden. This state of functioning is contra-indicated to writing and art-making so when I find a life giving, brain refreshing, delicious recipe such as this one, it is just nice.
So in honor of impending Spring, here's a recipe for a salad I just gathered and devoured, that is delicious AND healthy. Because I know some of you are delicate flowers too. Enjoy!
