This warm Brussels sprouts salad makes a hearty, healthy side dish. The tiny cabbages have certainly staged a comeback, but pickier eaters aren’t likely to dive into roasted Brussels sprouts on their own. To combat that problem, we tried roasting the vegetables with under a hot broiler alongside thinly sliced radishes and tart apple slices. After less than 10 minutes in the oven, you’ll squeeze some lemon juice over the dish and sprinkle a bit of shaved Parmesan over the whole thing. The result is a savory and sweet, bitter and tart warm “salad” everyone at the table will love.
