Brussels Sprouts, Red Onion & Apple Warm Salad

DSCN5311

This was a quick, tasty salad for lunch. First I cut up about a dozen brussels sprouts, about 1/4 cup of red onions and 1 Gala apple. I heated 1 TBSP of walnut oil in the skillet, added 1/2 tsp of cumin and 1 tsp of anise seed and let the oil heat. Then I added the sprouts, onions and apples all at once. Normally, you add onions first, but I didn’t want these onions to soften. I cooked on medium heat just until the brussels sprouts began to soften a bit. I added some salt and pepper and it was ready to serve. It made one serving and took less than 10 minutes from start to finish.

It has a nice blend of hearty and sweet with the sprouts and apple and the onion adds some great bite. The spices make it very flavorful and add depth.
