Brussel Sprouts Cilantro Dressing (1) ~ Simple Recipes Dot Me

This is such a simple and quick way to prepare Brussels sprouts. It is light and so good…specially if you like cilantro…I say that because I know many people that cannot stand cilantro…maybe cilantro is one of the things that either you love or you hate…luckily my husband and I are on the same pace in regards to cilantro.

First you roast the Brussels sprouts with a little olive oil, salt and pepper just before serving add the lemon cilantro dressing and voila, you have a warm Brussels sprout salad.

Ingredients:

Brussels sprouts, cut into quarter
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Lemon Cilantro Dressing to taste.

Method:

When washing and cutting the Brussels sprouts, leaves might come off, separate the leaves from the quarter.

Add a little olive oil, salt and pepper to the quarter of Brussels sprouts and roast in a pre-heated oven at 375F for about 25 minutes, just before it is done, toss the loose leaves to the tray and continue to roast until slightly golden.

Remove to the oven and toss with lemon cilantro dressing.

Serve warm or cold.

Did you know that Brussels sprouts were first mention in late 16th century? It is thought to be native to Belgium, near Brussels, therefore its name. Now Brussels sprouts are cultivated in Europe and US, specifically California.
