The Blackberry Farm chefs say this recipe convinces anyone to love brussels sprouts. Because the dish is served at room temperature, it's ideal for Thanksgiving or any time you're entertaining. Black walnuts have a more bitter, earthy flavor than traditional walnuts, although either will work well in the salad. Here, the brussels sprouts are pan-roasted on the stovetop to conserve oven space. If you prefer to cook them in the oven, toss them with 2 Tbs. olive oil, place on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast at 450deg.F (230deg.C) for about 15 minutes.
