Sweet and Tangy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are a Thanksgiving table staple!  I did not really care for them growing up though, because the only way I had had them prepared was steamed and overcooked with butter.  Since then, I have learned how to prepare them in such a way that they are delicious and I am going back for seconds.  Roasting them.  Roast any vegetable pretty much and it will be delicious.  You could just serve them then roasted with sea salt and they would be good, but there are other things you can add to them to to make them more festive.  This recipe for brussels sprouts that I am sharing with you has a tangy vinaigrette and sweet cranberries and crunchy pecans to accompany them.  It would be perfect for serving with your Thanksgiving meal!
