Brussels Sprout Salad

By • October 28, 2009 13 Comments

Author Notes: My recipe is based on a Broccoli Salad recipe that my friend Louise gave me. Chances are, you've probably had that Broccoli Salad at a summer barbecue. I decided to tweak it a bit, and make it Fall-appropriate. It'd be nice next to some Thanksgiving roast turkey. Or even the next day, on a turkey sandwich. The dressing is so good, you'll want to eat it by the spoonful. Careful there. I like my salads lightly dressed, so if you think yours is a bit on the dry side, just double the recipe for the dressing.mrslarkin


Serves 6 - 8


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • 2 10 oz. tubs Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup chopped crisp bacon
  1. For the dressing, whisk together the mayo, sugar and vinegar, and set aside. The sugar will disolve while you are preparing the salad.
  2. With a food processor fitted with the slicing disk, slice the Brussels sprouts. Transfer to a large bowl. Add onion, cranberries, pecans and bacon. Toss. Add dressing. Mix well and chill 2 - 5 hours, or serve immediately.
