Seasonal in the City with Brussels Sprouts

Seasonal in November for the following States: CA, OK, IA, TN & PA

 Not only is this one of our favorite Seasonal vegetables, but it is one that is often overlooked because of its bad rap. It took much convincing to even introduce this as a salad to my husband, but after shaving the little green gems, adding  plenty of  pecorino and pine nuts, he fell in love with the sprouts as much as I had. – Jenet
