This ginger miso brussels sprouts salad recipe is made of finely chopped sprouts and fresh winter produce and tossed in a creamy ginger miso dressing.
I know, I know. You guys see a lot of brussels sprouts around here. But is that so bad? Are there any complaints?
It's just that I don't think I've ever met a brussels sprout I didn't like. And there aren't many foods that I can say that about.
In this salad, brussels sprouts are thinly shaved and tossed in a creamy dressing with peanut and soy sauce. What's not to love?
Part of my current obsession with brussels sprouts may have something to do with trying to grow my own. My brussels sprouts didn't work last year. They didn't work twice. Not the ones that I planted in the spring and not that ones that I planted in late summer. I made novice gardener mistakes last year that I plan to learn from this year.
Don't plant tomatoes so close together.
Don't plant brussels sprouts near tomatoes.
Don't overwater your plants.
Don't underwater your plants.
Cover greens/brussels/cabbage etc. with netting because cabbage moths, which look like innocent white butterflies but lay eggs that grow into ravenous worms that will eat your plants alive, are scientifically proven to drive a person to insanity.
Put some thought into when I plant.
Against all odds, keep brussels sprouts alive until harvest.
I think that, armed with these valuable new lessons, I'll have a much more successful year in the garden. I plan to eat my own, homegrown brussels sprouts in salads and sautéed with strawberries and in casseroles and tossed with sriracha and maple syrup.
While I'm over here indulging my daydreams and eating this salad made with store-bought brussels sprouts, let me ask you two things: 1. What's your favorite way to eat brussels sprouts? and 2. Have you ever tried to grow your own?
