Whoever would have thought that brussels sprouts would become popular as more than a side vegetable? Add pistachios and you have a delicious meal, side or salad.
Brussels Sprouts are so under-appreciated and shouldn't be as this super food is high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet. And cooked well, absolutely delicious.
Heat oil in a large wok or saucepan over medium – high heat.
Cook the bacon until crispy.
Add pistachios and lemon rind and sauté for one minute.
Add brussels leaves and toss until bright green but still crisp, about 5 minutes.
Squeeze lemon juice over the leaves and season with salt and pepper.
Walnuts are a really nice addition to this salad.
