Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Slaw

brusselssprouts It seems that I gravitate towards some veggies more than others and this time of year we are getting large bags of Brussels sprouts in our Bountiful Basket. If you grew up hating Brussels Sprouts this is a sure bet it will change your mind. My theory is that by slicing them thin and then of course adding bacon to anything it will be a hit!

Ingredients

1 pound of Brussels Sprouts sliced thin

1 large apple or 2 small ones cut into bite size pieces

5 slices of bacon

Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, but not crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving the grease in the skillet. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.

Cook in your thinly sliced brussel sprouts. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until it softens, 5 to 7 minutes. Add in your apple cook another 2 minutes. Add your bacon back in and warm through.  Serve with a side of your favorite meat or bowl of soup.

Super Easy and this dish holds well for leftovers.

Sweet Chicken Salad

jar I don't eat mayonnaise - never have really. I go dry. As I got older I started using more spicy style mustard.

I hate it when I am doing laundry and I try so hard not to totally dry my sorta nice work-out clothing, the dry wick kind....just to find out as I am folding my clothes that I totally baked my work-out clothes. I guess that is why I never buy nice clothing - cause I will totally ruin it.

This idea is great when you have left over chicken in the fridge and it is starting to dry up on you. Okay maybe your chicken isn't dry but I always over cook my chicken.

For your Salad

2 large chicken breasts, cooked and cut up into bite size pieces

1 medium sized apple cut into bite size pieces. The sweeter the better

1 small green bell pepper, diced

For your Dressing

1 ripe avocado

2 tablespoons of mustard preferably a Dijon type.

2 tablespoons of olive

water as needed

1 tsp dried tarragon

1 tsp dried parsley

S/P

Mix your salad fix- ins into a bowl.

Prepare your dressing by adding in your avocado, mustard, olive oil and a tablespoon of water into your blender. Puree until smooth adding in more water as needed.  Pour over your salad along with your spices and stir together. Chill for about 15-20 minutes.

Then Eat!
