Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Apples

We hosted a fabulous dinner for some of the local CF athletes (see picture in last post) and this was one of the sides. It went over well and I know both Rory and ROBO loved it. Gotta get our greens!

1-1.5lbs brussel sprouts
1 small apple, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp honey
salt to taste

1. Cut sprouts in half then into 1/8 inch sections.
2. In a large skillet, cover bottom with a thin layer of oil.
3. When pan in hot, add sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until you start to see some golden pieces.
4. Add apple, garlic, honey and salt. Continue to cook until spouts are done to your liking. (We like ours soft, but not mushy).

This makes a lovely side dish and I love adding color to our meals. I imagine adding some toasted nuts (pecans, walnuts) would be tasty.
