Brussel Sprout Salad
This may not please all of your guests or your kids but the simplicity and color are a great addition to the menu. And not to mention, it’s a nice vegetable option. It is really easy and can be curated to your own taste, but this is what I used:
- 1 Bag of Brussel Sprouts
- 6 Slices of Bacon
- 1 Shallot (you could use 1/2 red onion + 3 cloves of garlic)
- 6 oz of Goat Cheese
- 1/2 C of chopped Walnuts
- 1/2 C of Golden Raisins
You want to shred the Brussels using a food processor or a mandolin into a bowl. Cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and let it cool.
Add shallot/onion and garlic to the pan with bacon drippings and cook until translucent.
Crumble bacon into the bowl with shredded Brussel Sprouts, add onions. Add the walnuts, raisins, and goat cheese before serving. I didn’t add any dressing because I think there are enough flavors. This can be served warm or cold.
