Brussels Sprout Salad with Maple Dressing

November 13, 2009
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

In This Recipe
  1. For the dressing, whisk together the mayo, maple syrup (or sugar) and vinegar, and set aside. If using sugar, 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.
