Brussel Sprouts Tossed with Pistachios and Dried Apricots!

Most of the ingredients are right in the title for you! No guess work involved! I got this recipe from a friend in the office! These were SO easy, but SO VERY delicious! Even Nick was surprised by how much he liked them!

Don't skip out on these! Great side dish option!

1.5 pounds of brussel sprouts (I got 2- 1lb bags of frozen)
2 T Olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup dried apricots finely diced
1/3 cup pistachios, chopped


If you are using frozen brussels, add about 1 cup of water and sprouts to a pan. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook for about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water immediately.

If you are using fresh, bring the water to a boil FIRST, then add sprouts and cook the same way until just tender.  Probably more like 3 minutes!

Then, heat your oil in a large skillet. Add all ingredients and toss together for about 5-6 minutes!

Serve up and ENJOY!

Don't turn your nose up at this until you try it!
