So I am starting the week out with Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad.
Are brussels sprouts mini cabbages?
This question makes me laugh a little. But there is a huge misconception that Brussels Sprouts are just baby cabbages – kind of like baby carrots. Which by the way, are not baby at all. They are just carrots cut and shaped and called baby carrots (now you know!). Back to the sprouts and cabbage. Although they do come from the same family, they grow very differently and Brussels Sprouts are not just a mini version of cabbage. Cabbage heads grown in the ground with the head facing down. Brussels Sprouts grow on a large thick stalk all lined up in a row.
