Pickled Brussels Sprouts

I discovered a new food item that I'd never had before yesterday - pickled Brussels sprouts. At our usual Friday afternoon happy hour kind of thing, there was a relish tray with a bunch of standard pickled things like artichoke hearts, dill pickle spears, olives, little sweet peppers, mushrooms, and then there were these sprouts. As far as I can tell, they were cooked very lightly (perhaps just blanched) and marinated with vinegar and red pepper. They were crunchy and spicy and cabbage-y and delicious.

I don't really know why I found the idea so surprising - pickled cabbage is quite a standard item, and Brussels sprouts really are just a tiny cabbage.

I don't think they were a big hit overall, though. I didn't see anyone else eat one.
