My relatives claim to hate Brussels sprouts, which I took as a challenge to come up with a recipe they'd love. When I served this at my Christmas buffet, there wasn't a sprout left in the bowl!

A tangy dressing makes this refreshing vegetable blend especially pleasing. You could serve it as an appetizer or a side dish. Sometimes I use thinly sliced carrots, zucchini or pearl onions.
Christmas dinner wouldn't be the same without this colorful side dish. We love the interesting combination of vegetables including red potatoes, brussels sprouts and parsnips covered with a zippy sauce.

This is a deeply delicious and sure-fire way to get my husband to enjoy Brussels sprouts. Between the roasted flavor of the veggies and smoky, crisp bacon, it will convert even the pickiest eater. —Lisa Speer, Palm Beach, Florida
"These mini cabbages are surprisingly big on flavor," notes Tina Repack of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Although the brussels sprouts are very simply seasoned, roasting them caramelizes their natural sugars, giving them a subtle sweetness.
"I like to make these special brussels sprouts when I need a fast dressed-up vegetable side dish," writes Karen Haen of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. "The recipe is sized perfectly for a dinner for my husband, Gene, and me. And it's easy to triple when we're expecting guests."
I love brussels sprouts and used to grow them in our garden when my children were small. I created this recipe myself, but I'm always on the lookout for other new ways to prepare sprouts.
