¾ Cup Incredible Spread ‘Em, melted
¾ Cup Fresh lemon juice
Big dash of cayenne…if you like it
1 tsp celery salt
Plenty of black pepper

1/8 tsp Ground cloves
½ Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
½ Tbsp Balsamic vinegar *optional
…few dashes of Angostura Bitters
After steaming, drain the sprouts well and allow to cool just a bit.
Put them in a shallow dish and pour the dressing over while they are still warm.
Stir them a few times before refrigerating them.
Allow them to cool to room temperature before serving or re-warm them.
We like them warm.. And then serve them tossed with toasted, chopped walnuts…..or if you possibly can….CHESTNUTS!
They can be served as a side dish….or part of a salad….Yumm!
