Red & Green Brussels Sprouts Salad Recipe Servings: 4
You'll need
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts leaves
  • ¼ cup Craisins, soaked in hot water and drained
  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup red onion, julienned
  • ⅓ cup 80/20 blended oil/grape-seed oil
  • 1 cup feta crumbled
  • 1 cup bacon, julienned
1. Bring oil to a simmer in a pan over medium-high heat, then add tomatoes, tossing and cooking until skin bursts. Once burst, remove from heat and hold for salad.
2. Next, bring 6 cups salted water to a boil, then add leaves and stir, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Once cooked, remove from water and allow to air cool.
3. In a food processor combine Craisins, vinegar, salt, and mustard, then puree. Slowly add oil. Once blended, taste and season, then remove.
4. To finish salad, mix all ingredients in large bowl, add ½ cup dressing and toss well to coat salad. Remove and serve.
