Brussels Sprouts-Tomato Salad

I love Brussels Sprouts this time of year, and I was so excited about a new way to serve them in this Brussels Sprouts-Tomato Salad. This recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving or your weeknight dinner, and it’s a cinch, flavorful and pretty. It was featured in the November issue of Birmingham Magazine and on NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” this month so it’s quite the popular Brussels Sprouts recipe. I even got two out of three of my kids to try it, and honestly, they liked it a lot!

The two food items that all of my three kids love, is shrimp and Caesar Salad. So I knew that when I came up with the recipe for Caesar Skewers for Kraft, I better make plenty for everyone. This recipe is too easy for words, only 15 minutes of prep time. Feel free to purchase already-cooked, frozen shrimp if you find that it’s cheaper. I have been buying it a lot lately, and the quality is great. Enjoy this as summer nears for a light one-dish meal.

I love Curry Chicken Salad, and this is one of my favorites. It’s really quick and easy because I like to use rotisserie chicken to simplify things. The combination of chutney, white wine, curry, cranberries and nuts flavor it to perfection. This recipe will be featured on Tuesday on NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” at 11:30 a.m central time along with a few other wonderful spring salads. Take a look or check the website for the video.
