Brussels sprouts are connected to the cabbage family and grow in edible buds. This recipe is a twist on the classic Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with simple olive oil, salt, and pepper. I added slices of green apples, pearl onions, and dried cranberries to give this roasted leafy veggie salad another dimension. The balsamic reduction provides this salad with a sweet and tangy taste that is super yummy.
