I've made this dish for most of the Thanksgivings since it was first published. EVERYBODY loves it. I find that not a lot of people really like brussels sprouts, but they like this dish -- a LOT. Incidentally, I saw that some reviewers said the sprouts needed more cooking. Not so -- just cut them into very fine shreds. If you do that, the color of the veggie is beautiful and the taste incomparably fresh.
