Why yes, you always capitalize the ‘B’ in Brussels sprouts. It’s named after a place don’t you know? You didn’t ? Neither did I until I started wondering why auto-correct couldn’t deal with the lower case ‘b.’
This is one substitution I would unmake if I still lived on the East Coast. The original recipe uses maple syrup to candy the nuts. Living in California, I don’t have much access to good quality maple syrup and it’s much easier to get good quality honey. If you are lucky enough to live in a place with excellent maple syrup it’s an excellent choice here.
You don’t need this much dressing for the dish – I generally only use about half in the recipe. BUT it is worth making all of it because it is delicious and tangy and keeps forever and tastes delicious on just about every salad.
