I think most of us have a less-than-ideal relationship with Brussels sprouts. They’re one of the most nutritious vegetables you can find in the grocery store, and yet most people hate them. The strong, bitter flavor can be incredibly off-putting, but they’re such a great source of antioxidants and anti-cancer compounds that we should all be making an effort to include them in our diet. Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of different preparations to help my household embrace them as at least an occasional side dish. And most of them weren’t successful… until I stumbled upon this Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad. With a creamy, crunchy, bacony dressing and bursts of sweetness from raisins (from red or green grapes, your pick), there’s so much awesome going on you might not even notice the Brussels sprouts. Of course, cooking them in a way designed to reduce their bitterness helps, too. This has become one of our favorite salad recipes!
