The evening scramble is tough. I find myself rushing around trying to figure out which dishes I can make that my whole family will enjoy. This quick Brussels sprouts dish is great because it’s really simple to make and you can prepare it while a chicken is roasting away in the oven, and it tastes great!
This quick warm slaw will make any person who isn’t fond of Brussels sprouts change their minds. The slight acidity of the lemon rounds out the buttery flavour of the sprouts, while the hazelnuts add a great crunchy texture to the dish.
