Creamed Brussels Sprouts | Peaches Please

There are few things I enjoy more than taking a beautiful, healthy vegetable and doctoring it up with cream and cheese. It’s like luring¬† something pure and wholesome to the dark side and it makes me feel all contrary and rebellious. I’m such a bad ass. But hey, if ever there’s a time to go for broke and bring on the cream, cheese and butter, then Thanksgiving is it. A day during which we give thanks for the good things and people in our lives and then we stuff ourselves silly. Why not give thanks for some creamy goodness while we’re at it?

May 1 is National Salad Day, and appears to be brought to you by Dole, which has a new line of salad products. I actually had to go to two different grocery stores to find the Dole salad bags, because apparently Publix doesn’t carry them. Kroger does. Consider yourself informed. I went with the spring mix salad blend and topped it with lots of fresh veggies, chicken and a buttermilk avocado dressing. Included among the fresh veggies are roasted radishes. What? You’ve never had cooked radishes before? Well, neither had I, which is a shame because they are delicious. When roasted, the radishes take on a mellow, sweet flavor and can basically be used in the place of roasted new
