fried grape//brussel sprout//hazelnut salad

2 cups grapes (red or green)
1 cup hazelnuts (chopped)
1 basket of brussels (cleaned/halved)
olive oil//white wine vinegar//honey
salt//pepper to taste
*if want you can add
goat cheese//manchego//pecorino*

*fire it up*
put oven on 400 bake/roast
place brussels face down in casserole dish
with olive oil & salt//leave in there for 15 minutes
then move around and leave for another 15
(total roast time 30 minutes)
chop up hazelnuts (mortar & pestle if you have one)
place in a small pan or small dish for oven
put in oven for 5 minutes OR in a small saute pan for 10 or so
let hazelnuts cool on the side
grab a wider (bigger) saute pan, turn the eye on medium
& swab some butter inside
pour grapes in when it's hot and let site for a minute or two
saute for 5 - 7 minutes & let cool a bit
combine in a good size bowl all 3 ingredients

*dress it up*
this dressing is definitely taste as you go
you can do 2 tbs of each ingredient
white wine vinegar//honey//olive oil
add salt and maybe some lemon
you can add a little more of the vinegar
as the it will shift with the sweet of the grapes
shake it up in a ball jar
(oh and heat honey to make it liquefy a bit
place the jar in super hot water and let it sit for a few minutes)
