It’s amazing how our taste change as we age, I attribute that to the maturing of our taste buds. When I was a child I strongly disliked Brussels Sprouts and unfortunately for me my childhood home was one in which dinner was a non-negotiable.
Breakfast was decided by whoever made to the kitchen first, lunch was free choice, dinner was decided by my Mom, who made it clear she wasn’t a short order cook and as long as she was responsible for our health and well-being, we would have to eat the foods she prepared.
Whenever we had Brussels Sprouts, I called them baby cabbage, I would eat everything else on my plate and leave them with the hope that my mother would tell me I didn’t have eat them. No such luck.
Years went by before I gave Brussels Sprouts a try again. I’m not really sure when I decided to try them again, but when I did my opinion had changed. Brussels Sprouts was once again a part of my diet, my choice.
I found myself including it in my salads which has become one of my favorite ways to have it.
This Pear Brussels Sprouts Salad, which is so easy, has become one of my all time favorites. It’s fresh, crisp and so delicious when served with the Poppy Seed Dressing I shared here last week.
