  • 1 bag of brussel sprouts, chopped in half
  • oil for frying

  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  1. Heat oil to approximately 375 degrees.
  2. While the oil is heating mix mayo, lemon juice, and cilantro.

  4. Drain on a paper towel and toss with salt and pepper in a bowl.
  5. Drizzle the balsamic reduction over the fries. Serve with the dip and enjoy!
  6. Alternate version - Toss sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts in olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast in the oven at 425 until golden brown.
