Ingredients:

16 ounces Brussel Sprouts

1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries

1/2 Cup Toasted Pecans, roughly chopped

1 Organic Honeycrisp Apple, finely chopped

Spiced Balsamic Reduction

2/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar (good quality)

1/8 Teapoon Ground Cinnamon

In a small sauce pan, over medium-low heat, bring balsamic vinegar to a simmer. Simmer 10-12 minutes or until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Stir in ground cinnamon. Set aside to cool.

Rinse brussel sprouts and trim off tough ends. Finely slice, or shred using food processor attachment. Transfer to a salad bowl.

Add cranberries, chopped apple, and toasted pecans to shredded brussel sprouts, toss to mix.

Serve salad generously drizzled with Spiced Balsamic Reduction.

Best served fresh.
