Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

Ingredients:

  • 12oz brussels sprouts, tough outer leaves pulled away (10oz weight post trim)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup gorgonzola cheese crumbles
  • 1 pear, chopped
  • 2 jumbo shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • For the Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette:
    • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Using a very sharp knife, thinly shred brussels sprouts while holding onto the core end then discard cores and add shredded sprouts to a large bowl with dried cranberries, pecans, gorgonzola cheese, and chopped pears. Set aside.
  2. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the shallots then fry until light golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Scoop onto a paper towel-lined plate to drain then repeat with remaining shallots. Sprinkle with salt then let cool slightly.
  3. Add ingredients for Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette together in a jar then shake to combine. Pour over salad then toss to coat. Add fried shallots then toss to combine, and then serve.
