Warm Winter Salad


Don’t go away.

Hear me out.

This salad will definitely captivate you.  “But it has Brussels sprouts!, ” you say.

Yes, I know.  Lets look past that and talk all about the other ingredients that make this salad awesome.
“But it doesn’t have croutons, or cheese, or creamy dressing! ”You object.“Doesn’t need it.” I say.


“But it has Brussels sprouts!,” you say.

“Ay, ay, ay, I know. It has raisins, balsamic vinegar and Korean pears.”  I reply.

“WHAT?!”  You exclaim and look at me as if I’ve lost my mind.

“It’s like a perfect marriage of flavors.  Try it!”  I say.

“Umm… no thanks.”  You quickly reply.

“More for me! (U_U)” I gladly answer.

I take a big bite.  With a mouth full I try to say “humf hugmf hugmf nom!”

“WHAT?!”  You annoyingly ask.

“I said, you have no idea what you’re missing.”

“ohhh…alright.” You reluctantly agree.

You take a bite.  Then another. Then a third.  Again until it’s all gone.

Then you ask…

“Did that salad have Brussels sprouts?”

    You’re so creative. I’m definitely making this salad, with a little vegetarian substitution, and I’m sure it will be just as delicious. Thanks!ReplyCancel
