Brussels sprouts, Pomegranate, and Apple Salad

Brussels sprouts, Pomegranate, Apple, Goat cheese and Maple vinaigrette salad


That was a mouthful. Are you looking for a healthy dish to serve with Thanksgiving? If so this may be it. A few weeks ago I was in New York City for a long weekend with family.  For dinner one night I got a Brussels sprouts salad that was amazing.


It was simple ingredients tossed together. I knew I wanted to try and recreate it at home.  I really went easy with this recipe. I got pre-shredded Brussels sprouts, pomegranate seeds and goat cheese crumbles all from Trader Joe's.  I only had to chop up the apple.


I dressed the salad with this maple vinaigrette.  We ate the first batch right away but had some leftovers.  A few hours later at dinner we finished it off. The second helping was much more flavorful than the first after the vinaigrette was absorbed into the Brussels sprouts a bit more.
