    Agave is not listed in ingredients. How much do you recommend?
    I will consider making this for family on Thanksgiving if someone else doesnt bring a salad. Or, I can just make and have all to myself!

    I used to HATE brussels sprouts, I’d gag around them. Now I love, love love them. And even if I didn’t love them, your gorgeous pictures would change my mind!

    I’ve got to admit that I’ve never tried brussels sprouts. I have nothing against them but I’ve just never made them. Anyway, your salad is making me want to try them!!
