Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenny1 from Tangy and Delicious! My husband and I love Brussels Sprouts so we had to try this recipe! The sauce was a snap to mix up in our vitamix! We didn't have safflower oil on hand, so we just used olive oil instead. The sprouts were delicious and the dressing was a great blend of tangy and sweet :)

It even went well with the ham that I served! My sauce was not green either; more brownish from the maple syrup. It was delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bahwm from A great way to cook Brussels Sprouts! I loved how the Brussels Sprouts turned out using this method of cooking, but the sauce did not look like that pretty green sauce in the photo provided. However, it had a good flavor. We did not have fresh thyme leaves in the house, so we cut the amount of thyme leaves in half and used dried. My dressing turned out to be more of a clearish vinaigrette.
