Shaved Brussels sprouts and Yukon Gold potato blinis with balsamic reduction

Shaved Brussels sprouts and Yukon Gold potato blini with balsamic reduction
This lovely appetizer is absolutely ideal for a dinner party… It’s gorgeous to look at and marvelously flavorful.

Sliced super-thin, the Brussels sprouts have a crunch that’s refreshing, but the creamy Pecorino Toscano shavings they’re tossed with, tame down their rawness. Drizzled with a lemony vinaigrette, the Brussels and Pecorino come to a delectable union.

At the other end of the spectrum, the featherweight, soft, warm blinis add a delightful contrast to the spunky Brussels sprouts.

The last layer of deliciousness comes in when every forkful is infused with a smidgen of the balsamic reduction.

This may not be your everyday appetizer, but I can tell you that serving it will bring equally great pleasure to both the diner and the cook!

I’ve never even tried brussels sprouts before, but this recipe might have convinced me to!
