Hot or cold Cranberry and shaved Brussels sprout salad

This recipe is super easy, and a great way to get extra veggies in your diet.
Brussels sprouts. Not many people like them, but they are super good for you.
If you can't stand them, try shaving them, like I did.
Now technically you can throw this in a salad and just eat it with a nice dressing.
But if you still can't stand the taste, try this:

  1. Shave your Brussels sprouts with a cheese grater
  2. make a simple (or use store bought) red wine vinaigrette  (you could also use balsamic, lemon, or whatever you like)
  3. in a pan heat some olive oil, to the pan add diced onions (about 2 tablespoons or so).
  4. cook the onions until translucent
  5. add 2-3 cloves of minced garlic   {the onion and garlic are optional, but will add more flavor}
  6. after a minute or two, add your shaved sprouts, and a dash of sea salt and cook about 4 minutes or until they start to wilt.
  7. Garnish with dried cranberries and chopped raw walnuts.
  8. serve hot or cold
**Tip, if this is for your kids or you like it sweet cook the sprouts with the dried cranberries

very yummy, me and my son ate it
