If you have never tried Hasselback potatoes you’re missing out! I first tasted them when I was a kid and immediately wanted more. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and kind of funky looking with their fanned out slices, they are definitely a cool looking vegetable.
We think Brussels sprouts cop a bit of an unfair reputation. On their own yes, we agree they’re not the tastiest food out there but serve them with some tasty sides and they come to life. Topped with a hazelnut, cider vinegar and maple syrup dressing this bacon salad is great for a quick and healthy meal.
With a barbecue loving husband who likes to fire up his Weber Smokey Mountain most weekends its my job to come up with salads to compliment the low and slow cooked meats.
