This Cranberry Pecan Brussels Sprout Salad is fresh & absolutely packed with flavour & interesting textures. It’s also hearty & warming thanks to the orangey cinnamon dressing. Just perfect for all of your fall & winter entertaining!
I don’t recommend you buy pre-sliced Brussel’s sprouts for this salad. They are generally cut quite thickly and having thin slices really makes a difference to flavour and eatability. Pre-chopped veggies also are often a bit dry and withered around the edges. Fresh is best and will pay dividends in flavour, texture and appearance.
This salad will keep well for a couple of days in the fridge once dressed. The sliced sprouts don't go slimy like lettuce does. If you are storing it though I would advise leaving the chopped nuts out until just before you serve to keep them nice and crunchy.
This salad can easily be made nut-free. Just omit the nuts from the dressing. It is still really good without them. And in the salad you can either omit the nuts completely or use some pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds instead.
