I am addicted to this balsamic glaze.  It tasted delicious on just about everything and a little goes a long way!

 

Instructions

Roasted Brussels sprouts:
    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.  Lightly grease the foil-lined baking sheet.
    2.  Slice all Brussels sprouts in half. In a medium bowl, combine halved Brussels sprouts, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt (to taste), and toss to combine. Place onto a foil-lined baking sheet, cut side down, and roast in the oven at 400 F for about 20 minutes. During the last 5-10 minutes of roasting, turn them over for even browning, the cut sides should be nicely and partially charred but not blackened.
Assembly:
  1. In a large bowl, combine roasted Brussels sprouts, pecans, and cranberries.  Add balsamic glaze and mix to combine.  Garnish with feta or blue cheese crumbles if desired.  Enjoy!
