Ingredients for Brussels Sprout Salad:

  • 1 lb (450 g) Brussels sprouts
  • 2 dessert apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 oz (56 g) walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper

MethodĀ for Brussels Sprout Salad :

  1. Take the fresh Brussels sprouts, preferably smaller rather than larger ones, and peel off any loose or yellowing outer leaves.Do not follow the traditional recipe of cutting a cross into the base and boiling until the house smells of cabbage and the sprouts are a mush. Bring a pan of water to the boil.
  2. Drop the prepared sprouts into the water and put a lid on the pan, leaving the heat on high until the water returns to the boil. After 3 minutes, strain the sprouts and shake off any excess water.
  3. Rinse under cold water for a moment to stop the cooking from residual heat and then allow to cool.
  4. Core and slice 2 dessert apples – tossing the slices immediately in the lemon juice to prevent them turning brown.
  5. Add to the cooled sprouts.
  6. Chop 2 oz (56 g) of walnuts and add to the sprouts and apple.
  7. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon wine vinegar with 4 tablespoons olive oil, salt and black pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.

    Sounds interesting – I have tried making a salad using raw sprouts and it was a bit of a disaster as they were so bitter and dominated the other vegetables.
