Warm Pine Nut Brussels Sprouts Salad Recipe

I serve this warm salad as a side for holiday dinner parties. It’s always a huge hit because most people assume they hate Brussels sprouts, but this convinces them otherwise. For additional protein or to up this to meal status, add cooked diced chicken, top with a maple glazed salmon fillet, or serve with apple pork loin.
