|Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts Salad|
As luck should have it, I had all the ingredients for this Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts Salad, a recipe I'd pulled from a recent issue of Cooking Light magazine. It was just the thing to ease me back into cooking, one week postpartum, because it took a total of ten minutes to prepare. A quick whirl of the vegetables in the food processor, tossed with a few other ingredients, and I had a simple side salad that Ryan and I enjoyed for lunches for the next few days. I think I'd been worried about how I'd ever find time to cook again and this recipe helped prove to me that so long as I choose the right kind of recipes, homemade food is absolutely still doable! You don't need long or fancy ingredient lists to make good food, as this simple but tasty salad demonstrated!
1. With the slicing blade of a food processor, slice the brussels sprouts and radishes.
2. Toss brussels sprouts and radishes with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, stirring to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
