Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad with fresh Orange, Pomegranate, Ginger & Shallots
I’ve recently discovered what has become a favored side dish in my house…..roasting Brussels sprouts and adding winter fruits like orange and pomegranate can make anybody love this seasonal vegetable!
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup olive oil
1 lb Brussels sprouts, halved along the stem
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup sherry vinegar
1 cup chopped shallots (about 4-6 shallots)
1 ½ teaspoons whole grain mustard
¼ bunch fresh thyme leaves removed and chopped
1 ½ teaspoons honey
*additional ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup canned garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 orange, zested and flesh cut into small pieces
1 pomegranate, seeds removed and set aside
½ red onion sliced very thin
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 oz. feta
Method ~ pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss the Brussels sprouts in olive oil and roast in preheated oven in a cast iron pan. Cook until Brussels sprouts have browned, or for about 20 minutes. Transfer sprouts to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, mix salt, vinegar, shallots, mustard, thyme, honey, and olive oil. Pour mixture into the same sauté pan used to roast Brussels sprouts and bring to a simmer. Add garbanzo beans and simmer for an additional 2 minutes then remove from heat. Add orange zest & cut orange pieces, pomegranate seeds and pepper to the sprouts. Pour the warm sherry mixture over the Brussels sprouts and transfer to a serving bowl and top with feta.

Cheers!

Dunne on Wine: Young vines produce well at Harney Lane
By Mike Dunne

“Oddly, no vintner to my knowledge has put “Young Vines” on the label of a bottle of wine. You see “Old Vines” all the time, even though no fixed definition of the term exists and even though the scientific evidence to support the suggestion that older vines yield superior wines is shaky.
Vintners likely avoid boasting of young vines because the vines are untested and because they lack the thick and weathered builds that speak to maturity, experience, survival and photo ops, all valued characteristics in the marketing of wine. And at some unspecified point, young vines no longer could be marketed as young, unless some viticulturist comes up with a way to provide them with the vineyard equivalent of a face-lift.
At any rate, younger vines have shown that they are quite capable of producing remarkably notable wines.”
